The new Melissa High School is spread out over three buildings (similarly to a junior college campus) with the main academic building at four stories in height. We do have limited access to an elevator during the tournament, but it will be restricted to judges and students to whom access in essential. In order to better aid the tournament in running on time and to prevent contestant and judges from constantly having to traverse the four story building, the debate portion of the tournament will be migrated to Tabroom so that electronic ballots can be used. All debate judges and contestants will need to have Tabroom.com accounts. If you need any assistance with Tabroom, please do not hesitate to ask.
Cross Enter students at your own risk. We have tried to schedule events in such a way as to allow students to compete in several contests throughout the day. Pay close attention to the schedule to avoid problems. XE at your own risk!
