The Speech and Debate tournament will take place on February 14, 15 & 16, 2019. We will register and begin the Congress event at American HS on Saturday, February 09, 2019 at 9:00am We will follow the NEW & UPDATED National Speech and Debate Association Congress Qualification rules and formulae. It is the affirmative responsibility of all coaches to read and know the rules.
Remember that a student may enter two speech or debate events, plus congress.
The online Speech and Debate Tournament registration deadline is 12:00 p.m. on Friday, February 02, 2019. You must register online by that deadline. The traditional paper registration with signatures is due February 09, 2019 and may be delivered by hand to the Congress event or mailed to Dana Facer (American Falls HS, 2966 So. Frontage Road, American Falls ID, 83211). (You may also hand deliver it to the Rigby Tournament to ensure that your paperwork is complete and correct in advance.)
Entries are based upon the NSDA rules so please be sure to read them. Each school/coach has been assigned a board member to assist you through the registration process. Please use their knowledge to assist you with registration questions or concerns.
Note that if you have a student who would like to participate on the World Debate team, that needs to be expressed on their letter of intent. Conversely, students not qualifying for nationals as determined on Saturday, and who then wish to enter the Big Questions qualifying tournament do NOT need to indicate Big Questions on any letter of intent. The tab room is as always open to coaches. Please read the page on tournament etiquette. Tournament management will be on computer with Joy of Tournaments.
We look forward to seeing you and your students at the tournaments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
