& Idaho Falls Food Basket Canned Food Drive

*We are again doing a Winter canned food drive competition to help fill the Idaho Falls Food Basket for needy families this Winter season.  We are making this a competition with trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams.  Please encourage each member of your team to bring at least 1-5 cans of food! 

The Bonneville Tournament is now open for registration. This tournment will take place on January 17-18, 2020.  The Tournament will close registration Thursday, January 16th at 4:00pm. The reason for this late change time is so there are no drops at the tournament!

The Bonneville Tournament will feature Novice and Varsity divisions of Policy, Lincoln Douglas, and Public Forum Debate. We are also offering World Schools Competition this Year!  Congress will be combined and run as a debate only event.

We will be doing the January PF Topic and the January-February LD Topics at the Bonneville Classic.


 The Bonneville Classic Congress Preliminary sessions will use the December 2019 sample NSDA Docket and the Super Congress will use the [COMBINED] Senate and House Finals Legislation from the 2019 NSDA Nationals Docket

Extemporaneous Speaking- Foreign and domestic are combined.

Speech will have three preliminary rounds and a final round. The tournament will offer all Idaho state speech events and Spar:

Impromptu, Panel, Informative Speaking, Spontaneous Argumentation, Humorous Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Original Oratory, POI, After Dinner Speaking, Oratorical Analysis, Salesmanship, Radio Speaking, Retold Story, and Extemporaneous Speaking.  DOUBLE ENTRY IS PERMITTED

**We will use the new state rules for Impromptu-7 minutes total prep and delivery time.

The Tournament will not be limited by A&B constraints.  Students may enter, for the most part, any two speech events with the following warnings in mind


Please do not double enter students into panel and a draw event; that is impossible!!

Please instruct double entered students, with panel as one of their events, to go to panel first each round and then hustle to their 2nd round. You may double enter, but you do so at your own risk. 

In addition, double entering a student in a draw event and then a 2nd event is cautioned against because the tournament cannot guarantee that time for a round will not run out before a student can get from their draw performance to a 2nd event.  You may double enter this way but you are doing so at your own risk.

Each school may bring a maximum of 16 debate entries. Each LDer counts as an entry and each policy/pf team counts as an entry. Schools may not enter more than 6 entries in any single division (without management permission).  Schools may enter 6 students in each speech entry. However, an attempt will be made to fit in everyone you would like to bring, if possible.

Concessions will be provided.
