Dear Colleagues,  


       The Woodlands High School Texas Forensics Association chapter enthusiasticaly invites you attend our annual TFA Qualifying tournament, to be held October 25-26.


Please understand that we will be hosting our tournament at the 9th grade campus at 10010 Branch Crossing Drive, The Woodlands, Tx. 77382. 

Entries will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Entries will be accepted until our facilities are full. All entries must be finalized on Joy of Tournaments by October 23rd, 2019. At this point, fees will be fixed and drop fees will be accessed. 


We will be offering all TFA qualifying events, as well as Prose, Poetry and Novice divisions in Cross Examination Debate, Lincoln Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate and Extemporaneous Speaking. Additionally, we are offering Novice Interpretation (either Prose or Poetry reading) and Novice Performance (Either Humorous Interpretation or Dramatic Interpretation) for your young actors.


 ****** In response to the TFA amendment, we must clarify that should a school decide to use laptops in extemp draw, The Woodlands High School can not be held responsible for lost or damaged laptops.  Should a student decide to use a laptop in the prep area, students must leave their computers in draw while they are in the competition room and students will not be allowed back into the draw room until extemp draw has been completed.  Furthermore, The Woodlands High School will not provide power sources for laptop use. 


We plan to have INCREDIBLE options in hospitality - Last year all coaches were provided Starbucks, Pei Wei, Bubble Tea, Chick-Fil-A, Which Wich, and more! We ASSURE you there will be vegetarian/vegan options available for a variety of palates!

We had SO many judges available last year that we were able to panel ALL semi-finals rounds! We plan to do the same thing this year to increae the likelihood of your students getting quality ballots for the middle of the semester! 

TWHS Debate students will be wearing costumes, and the WHOLE school will be decorated for the holiday! We will have fun treats, games, gifts and prizes! Don't forget about the COSTUME CONTEST!!! Check it out on the "Costume Contest" tab at the top!

Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions. We are looking forward to a great tournament!
