Isidore Newman School Invitational
2017 — New Orleans, LA/US
Text of message:
Registration for the 40th Newman Invitational, hosted by Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, is now open. The tournament will take place on December 7-9 on our beautiful campus.
Rounds in all events will begin on Friday afternoon and will continue on Saturday. Most events will finish on Saturday and a small handful will finish on Sunday. See our page on tabroom.com for more details.
We offer two new events:
1. We will add a novice division of Public Forum. We hope to provide an appropriate level of competition for the newest members of this event.
2. We will offer World Schools Debate. It is the newest form of competitive debate in the NSDA family, and we would like to support its growth. We are grateful to Cindi Timmons, the manager and one of the coaches of the USA Debate Team, for her advice in our efforts to include this event.
The tournament also gives many the opportunity to meet the new director of speech and debate at Newman. Mr. Omar Guevara joined our faculty this school year. He brings a wealth of coaching experience at the collegiate level, most recently serving as the director of debate at Weber State University in Utah. Our school's forty year history in speech and debate is in capable hands under Omar's leadership.
We hope you will join us in New Orleans on December 7-9.
