Please join us for our annual speech and debate tournament. We are extremely excited about this tournament and hope that you will make plans to join us. Because our tournament has grown over the last few years but our campus hasn’t our space becomes limited very quickly, due to this, we can only guarantee the first 6 entries per event. All names past the first six will be placed on a waiting list. You will be notified if any of your official entries are dropped after the January 4th deadline. If you have any questions please feel free to email/call.
All events are on Saturday and will run back to back. If you have available judges please bring them with you. This year, we will have a judges check in table, that way, we will know exactly who is here and who isn't.
Students are only allowed to enter two events per category (including substitutions for another student and group events), and this is done at the students' risk. CX and LD Debaters cannot cross enter in category B; any debater will be DQ if not in their round within 5 minutes of opponent and judge arriving in room.
So please, come join the fun!
The deadline for entering is Wednesday January 3, 2018.
The Spring LD topic will be used.
The speaking events are patterned. Cross enter our own risk. You may enter only two events per pattern.
We are dedicated to running an efficient tournament for your benefit and enjoyment. If your student does not make the round in the allotted time frame the student will be disqualified.
