Welcome to our 4th Annual Angel Tournament
*Saturday, September 15th, 2018*
Mabank HS Speech & Debate
18786 US 175
Mabank, TX 75147
We are thrilled to invite you to attend. We have a new look and new options for the new season!
Novice UIL Events Offered:
- Informative/Persuasive Extemp
- Congressional Debate
Each team/debator should have one “Angel” (experienced debater) with them for all their rounds. In the case that Angels are not present, judges can offer guiding advise as needed.
What an Angel does:
- is an advisor and mentor
- may help them flow, decide on strategy, and “prep” them between speeches (extended 15 minutes/side for Round 1; 10 minutes for Round 2)
- gradually decreases the amount of help given to their debaters as the rounds progress (by Round 3 the debaters are more “on their own”)
What an Angel does NOT do:
- not their partner.
- may not give speeches or portions of speeches or call out prompts (questions, answers, arguments, or suggestions) to debaters who have the floor for a speech. We do not want this to be a case of “My Angel can beat your Angel;”
This tournament features multiple rounds for critiques and helpful ballots. Quality competition this early on is critical to the success of students. If you have any questions about NTDA (we are a member!) or UIL, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help in any way we can. We look forward to seeing you!
