Lincoln-Douglas Value

In NCFCA, Lincoln-Douglas debate resolutions are constructed to create a clash of competing values rather than the adoption of a specific policy.

The Lincoln-Douglas debate format is one-on-one debating, named after the famous debates between Stephen Douglas and Abraham Lincoln.
