Teams debated motions about living wages for stay-at-home parents, development aid in Rwanda, and the global economic crisis. For round 4, both Colgate teams ended up debating against each other and 2 other teams. They debated the motion, “This house believes that democratic reform is more important than economic growth for China.”

Sebastian and Jack, and Madeline and Julia finished the tournament solidly with 5 points.
