St. Thomas High School
Middle School Speech and Debate Tournament
4500 Memorial Dr.
Houston, TX 77007
We invite you to join us for our fall Speech and Debate Tournament at St. Thomas High School. Our desire is to provide you a tournament that will offer great competition and warm hospitality. We will be offering a variety of events in debate, public speaking, interpretation, and drama for both teams and individuals. We will also offer a novice division in many events. Congressional Debate will continue to be offered as a debate option. Registration will be via the Joy of Tournaments website at www.joyoftournaments.com (click on the “Other” tab). This year, rather than offer sweepstakes awards in both large and small school divisions, we will simply offer 1st through 6th place overall.
Initial entries are due by Friday, November 23. We have limited facilities, so it is important that you complete your entry as soon as possible. We cannot accept entries after our facilities are full. Drops after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 28, will result in loss of entry fees.
It is our goal to present you with a tournament that provides both a quality learning environment and administrative efficiency. We hope to see you in December. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.
