2018 Santa Ana Dia de Los Muertos Invitational

Hello all!


While we were disappointed to hear that Spartan Fall Classic was cancelled this year, we are happy to be able to host a tournament so that our students all still benefit from competition and have a chance to get some ballots before the big tournaments towards the end of the first semester. So, we are pleased to welcome you to the Santa Ana Dia de los Muertos Invitational! The tournament will be hosted at Century High School in Santa Ana, on Saturday, October 27th. It will be a one-day tournament and we will offer Open Divisions of Individual Events and Congressional Debate.

We have a judging requirement of 1 judge for every 6 entries, however, we do have the option of a judging buy-out. We will be hiring a pool of college forensics competitors to help us fill out our pool of hired judges so that our students will have new perspectives in the judging pool. If you would like to buy-out your judging commitment, the fee will be $30 per judge. If you do not wish to buy-out, you may enter your judges in the tournament registration process. If your judges do not show up the day of the tournament you will have the option to pay the buy-out or to drop entries.
