2.   State Champs!  April 6th- 7th!! 

The MS State Champs will now be on the same date as the HS State Champs on April 6th-7th (Saturday-Sunday). Address and Google Maps on our website calendar page -  Reminder the State Champs is not a UDL league tournament  - it is an invitational tournament open to all schools in New York State and member UDL schools. So there are fees - school fee + team fees for this tournament.  But this invitational tournament allows us to help cover the costs of the tournament and any proceeds to to providing summer debate institute scholarships.  The fees are the same as prior years 


Fees: There are fees associated with this tournament because it is an "invitational" tournament and fundraiser for debate camp scholarships!  School fee: $50; Entry fee: $40/team (Parliamentary, Policy and Public Forum); Congressional Debate: $20/entry. Hired judge fee: $150; Drop fee: $25/team. All proceeds go to covering the costs of the states tournament and funding scholarships for our summer debate institutes. All NYC Title I public schools are eligible for a limited number of scholarships to attend debate camps. So thank you for supporting a good cause! 


Fee example for those who are new to "Invitational Tournaments."  Every school is charged a "school fee" for attending. This is $50.00 - no matter if you have 1 debater attending or 500 debaters attending.  And then every school is charged based on each "team" registered whether one or two persons on the team.  The team fee is $40.00/team. So if you bring 1 team, that would be $40 (1 team) +$50 (school fee) for a total of $90.00. If you bring 5 teams that would be $40 X 5 teams = $200 + School Fee of $50 = Total of $250.00.  Also note you should bring your own judges but if you cannot find judges we can fulfill your judge obligation for a total of $150.00 which is the amount of a hired judge.
