CONTESTANT AND JUDGE NAMES
It is essential that we receive first and last names of both contestants AND judges with your entry. We will not accept entries with Contestant 1, Contestant 2, or Judge A or Judge B, etc.
In addition, if you are going to bring multiple judges to cover a required judging slot, you should identify which judges will be available for which rounds. We will NOT be able to allow schools to trade off ballots after rounds have been posted. Of course, we will make name changes as this becomes necessary and we will deal with emergencies as best we can. PLEASE call in advance of registration with changes.
For your convenience, we will provide sumptuous food at our snack bar, which will be located in our cafeteria. Food will be provided for coaches and judges. We do ask that you not allow your students to bring food from other vendors into our building. We would not do that to you.
Debate: Novice and Varsity Divisions of LD and PF
We will be using the Jan/Feb topic for LD and the Feb topic for PF. We do NOT use the novice topics.
IE: Flight A: HI, OO, POI, IMP
Flight B: DI, DUO, INFO, EXT
Extemp will flip flop between domestic and foreign, starting with domestic, and thus, the final will be foreign.
We will use all NSDA rules and regulations for events.
