8th Annual Pflugerville High School
**Panther Classic** TFA Qualifier
September 15/16, 2017
We cordially invite you to attend Pflugerville High School's TFA Qualifying tournament. We are excited to offer one of the first tournaments of the season. We hope your seasoned competitors get a head start on their TFA qualifications and your novices find this a supportive and fun learning experience.
All TFA qualifying events will be offered. Additionally, we will offer the non-qualifying events: Poetry and Prose.
A novice division will be offered in extemp, cx, ld, pf, pr, and po. Entries will be limited to 20 per school. Novices will be defined as students in their first year of high school speech and debate competition. Should numbers not make in novice divisions, we will collapse into varsity.
We are excited to offer scaffolded novice extemp again this year. All novice extemp topics for prelim rounds will come from the topic area of U.S. social issues. Novice extemp topics for semis and finals will come from a combination of the following areas: U.S. politics and U.S. social issues. This provides novices a level playing field and a sense of confidence in their knowledge of predetermined topic areas.
Any judges interested in a contract please complete the form under the JUDGES tab. If you have further questions, please email Ron Hester at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you in Pflugerville!
