Welcome to the DAV Website
The DAV is a non-profit association which exists to promote debate. It is the peak debating body in Victoria and runs large competitions for adults and for schools across Victoria. It provides training and resources for debaters, teachers and adjudicators.

Resource Guides

The DAV publishes a Resource Guide which provides a brief for particular topics to facilitate student research for prepared topic debates. The Resource Guide is not a substitute for proper preparation, and its aim is simply to help you prepare your own case. You should not structure your case around the questions asked, nor should you rely too heavily only on the articles to which we provide links. Any ideas that the Resource Guide gives you will need to be explained just like any other material.

Round 1: That schools should punish students for striking

Round 2: That we regret the use of participation awards

Round 3: That we should incentivise people to relocate to the country
