    The Entomological Society of America’s (ESA) Committee on Student Affairs organizes the student debate competition at the national meeting of ESA each year. The debate competition was specifically designed to increase the critical thinking skills in the student members of ESA, as well as to discuss contemporary issues about entomology that are of interest to people attending the annual meeting. The Entomology2013 Student Debate Competition partially followed a different format than that in previous years. Each topic was related to the theme of the meeting: Science Impacting a Connected World. Two of the topics were a traditional “pro/con-style” debate and the third topic posed a specific problem that faces the world and teams were to find, what they determined to be, the most effective solution to ameliorate that problem and defend it in the competition. The topics were, 1) What is the Best Individual Solution to Preserving the World's Current Biodiversity? 2) Using Citizen Scientists to Collect Data in Scientific Experiments 3) Using GMOs to Increase Food-Security in Regions Where the Technology is not Universally Accepted. Each of these topics is presented with an unbiased introduction, followed by the solution-specific stances of each of the debating teams.
