We will be holding a mini-tournament using the Big Questions format. The tournament will be April 20 at McQueen High School.
For right now, each school may send two students to compete in the BQ Tournament. I am working on the set-up for this in Joy of Tournaments. In the meantime, please send me the names of your entries. Since this is a district qualifying event, you need to make sure they have at least 25 NSDA points.
From there (if needed) we will add entries until we reach the minimum requirement.
Topic: Resolved: Humans are primarily driven by self-interest.
Judges: Each school will need to provide at least one judge per round (except semi-finals and finals) in addition to the coach (Spring Creek/Elko are the only exemptions). Please send me the name(s) and times of the additional judges you will be providing.
Food: Please have your students/judges/coaches pack lunch and snacks. There will be a limited snack bar for students.
FYI: If you end up with the Qualifier in this event, you must provide a judge for the event- you can’t purchase judge commitments in Big Questions.
Please let your judges know that there WILL BE rounds where they are not used, but that they need to stick around for the next round. Because the event is so small, and because there are so few teams involved, we will have to be creative with judge assignments. I’m confident that it will all work out, but we’ll definitely need people to stick around all day.
