The Leaky Faucet Award

This award went to the debater who, in the opinion of its prior recipient, best represented the leaky faucet. It symbolized an ability to get leaks, sometimes without even trying. It was typically awarded to a rising senior, with exceptions in 2012 and 2006. As a result of changing APDA norms regarding round disclosure, the award was retired in 2014.
