A conclusion for a debate speech is slightly different from a normal essay or speech. When doing your conclusion, you should essentially show the adjudicator what you have delivered, what the other team has delivered, how the debate stands (look at this from the point of view of the adjudicator, although more biased towards your team) and restate your team line.

Examples are a great way to support an idea.

Generally when you start a debate speech you may or may not start with a quote or an anecdote about the topic you are debating on, but most commonly you will begin the speech by stating the resolved or the question being discussed, then state whether or not you affirm (favor) or negate (stand against) that resolved.

A debate is a formalized discussion between opposing/conflicting sides in which each side presents its position within a given time slot and there is generally time for sides to cross-examine eachother for questions and points of clarification. A speech is simply a one sided discussion, in which one person constructs a speech on a given topic and presents it to an audience.
