Dear UIL Coordinators, Academic Sponsors, and Speech and Debate Coaches,


            Van High School cordially invites you and your students to attend the 10th Annual Van Fire and Ice UIL Academic, Speech, and Debate Invitational Tournament on January 5-6, 2016.

            In keeping with our commitment to a well-rounded academic and forensics education, we will offer students the opportunity to compete in every UIL academic, speech, and debate event, as well as many National Speech and Debate Association events.  We will also offer the UIL Copy Editing. 

            For our academic events, we will be using independent testing material for every event so that your students can get a unique competitive experience as they gear up for the district meet.  Additionally, the speech and debate portion of our tournament will feature three preliminary rounds and three elimination rounds of debate and the possibility of two sessions of Congress.

            We hope to see you at our tournament in January.  We expect to have a competitive and diverse invitational which should help prepare your students for district competitions.  We will do our best to accommodate every entry, but we recommend that interested schools submit their entries as soon as possible to guarantee a spot.



Ben Palmer

UIL Academic Coordinator

Director of Forensics
