You and your team are invited to the annual Russellville High School Cyclone Forensics Tournament on November 17-18, 2017. We promise a lot of good food and fun for everyone! Our team's service project this year is support of our Food Pantry and Clothing closet. We are asking that teams collect items and bring to tournament. If you would like to help support our Food Pantry/Clothing closet, we are going to have a contest, and the school that brings the most nonperishable food items, socks, underwear, gloves, etc will get a mascot globe, signed by the artist and a plaque for your team!!
We will be offering Finalist and Sweepstakes trophies and medallions for all quarterfinalists. Deadline for entries is Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 5:00pm. There will be no refund for any team who drops after the deadline. There will be a $20 penalty for any debate drop after this time. There will also be a $20 uncovered judge fee. You must bring a qualified judge for every 2 debate teams entered and a qualified judge for every 15 IE’s entered.
