National Speech and Debate Association
Congressional Debate will be Saturday, February 25, 2017
at Ladue Horton Watkins High School in St. Louis.
This site is for the District Competition in Congressional Debate. The Speech & Debate website will be open very soon, and that registration website will be your go-to
for information and registration for the speech and debate portion of the Eastern Missouri District competition, to be held March 9-11, 2017.
Jocelyn Nebel is the Director of Congress.
Please submit two pieces of legislation -- ideally one bill and one resolution -- to Jocelyn by January 24th. Please email them in TWO DIFFERENT MSWord attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please register your students by 4 PM Friday, February 17th, and have the "green sheets" to Joeclyn by that time. NOT IN THE MAIL, BUT IN HER HANDS. Don't forget to include alternates in case you need to make substitutions!
Please go to the "Registration" page and enter your students. You can place up to two in the Senate and however many you are allowed in the House -- please balance them in the FOUR Houses. Indicate if a student wishes to run for Presiding Officer -- so please only put one potential PO in each chamber. Jocelyn will balance the chambers after registration is closed -- and, if we don't get enough legislators, they will collapse houses, so be sure to print and send your "green sheets" from Joy.
