Event Description:


  • Legislation eligible to appear on the docket will be taken from the MHSAA Bill Book for 2022-23, per the schedule listed therein.
  • Generally, all chambers will follow NSDA Rules for parliamentary procedure and ranking/evaluation. To the extent they differ from the NSDA Rules, MHSAA rules will govern.

  • Internet-connected laptop computers and tablet devices may be used by delegates, but may not be used to receive information for competitive advantage from non-competitors (coaches, assistant coaches, teammates, other students, etc.) inside or outside of the room in which the competition occurs. WiFi normally is readily available, but we make no assurance that interruptions will not occur. Consequently, debaters are encouraged to have essential files printed in hard copy or stored on their devices.

  • Subject to entry numbers, we will make our best effort to ensure that each preliminary chamber has 15 or fewer competitors. The total number advancing to the final Super Session will be determined by the number of preliminary chambers established.
