Mount Vernon Debate Derby
2017 — Atlanta, GA/US
Junior Varsity Policy
|Entry:||2 people per entry|
The Mount Vernon Debate Derby will use the Georgia Forensic Coaches Association definitions for these categories, which are as follows:
Novice (first year) Competitors are in their first year of high school competition. Junior (second year) Varsity Competitors are in their second year of high school competition regardless of grade level.
We ask that schools provide ONE qualified judge for each TWO teams they bring to the competition. The Mount Vernon Debate Derby considers students who have debated extensively on at least two resolutions to be qualified to judge novice debates; students who have debated extensively on at least three resolutions to be qualified to judge junior varsity debate.
Schools that cannot cover all of their entries to the tournament may request hired judging on a first come, first served basis. The cost of hired judging is $50 per uncovered entry.
