Usually, after the speakers on each side have spoken the chairperson asks the leaders of each side to sum up what their team-members have said. Each leader usually ends this part of the debate by saying something like ".... and so, ladies and gentleman, I urge you to (support/oppose) this motion, thank ypu".

When both leaders have summed-up, the chairperson then puts the motion to the meeting in the form of a vote by show of hands... "Would those in favour of the motion raise their right hands.". and then the chairperson takes a quick and rough count. They then ask "Would those against the motion raise their right hands." Again, they take a count and, if possible, declare a winner. If this is not possible, then another show of hands is called for and the chairperson takes an accurate count of each side's support.

The chairperson then declares which team won.

So when you have finished writing about your topic, what I do is that I read what I wrote and I think of a sentence which would rap the whole thing up. So in your case a short sentence (doesn't have to be a short sentence...) what you think, point of view.... and what you have tried telling them (the message) your whole paragraph has been about.

Do you say thank you at the end of a speech in a debate?

It is not customary to say "thank you" at the end of a speech in a debate. Debates are structured to focus on the logical arguments and evidence presented, rather than expressing gratitude. A debate typically concludes with a summary or closing statement, which reiterates the main points and may end with a strong concluding statement instead of a thank you.
