Bulldog MS Invitational

2017 — IA/US

Bettendorf MS Invitational

MS Speech and Debate Tournament

Saturday, May 13th, 2017


Bettendorf is proud to announce the Bettendorf Middle School Invitational, to be held on Saturday, May 13th, 2017 at Bettendorf Middle School.  This is our fourth MS tournament and we hope that you will consider joining us – all schools are welcome! 

Junior High / Middle School programs have been growing in the state of Iowa for many years, due largely to the efforts put forth by Tim Sheaff of Dowling Catholic High School.  As the number of interested schools has grown, so has the desire for more opportunities for participation in speech/debate activities.  Bettendorf is proud to offer our 4th annual MS tournament event. 

This year, MS students will have two opportunities to compete in interscholastic speech/debate activities, as follows:

 ü  DM East hosting May 6th – main contact is Lauren McCool (with Dave McGinnis hosting additional events at Stilwell Jr High)

 ü  Bettendorf hosting May 13th – main contact is Joe Rankin

The tournaments are not as seamlessly integrated as previous years, but will offer 2 great opportunities for MS students to compete.  

This is an exciting time of the year, as we all strive to help get MS programs up and running. If you (or someone you know might be interested) have any questions regarding speech and debate activities, please send me an e-mail using the contact information below.

Thanks again for your support and I look forward to hosting our fourth MS tournament.  See you in May!
