The Chesapeake District Committee welcomes you and your team to the District Tournament, to be held this year on April 1st at Loyola Blakefield High School in Towson, MD.
The tournament features competition in speech, debate, and congress events. Top entries will qualify for the National Speech and Debate Association National Tournament, to be held this year in June in Birmingham, AL.
Please read the information in these pages carefully, as this tournament is different than many others that you may be accustomed to attending.
We will be using the MARCH debate topics.
