On January 10, 2013, ballots from 33 states, the National Catholic Forensic League, National Debate Coaches Association and the National Forensic League were tabulated at NFHS headquarters to select the 2013-14 national high school policy debate topic. Latin America was selected over Export Controls with 70% of the votes.
