Lincoln Railsplitter Speech Debate Tournament

2018 — Des Moines, IA, IA/US

Speech and Debate Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the 2018 Lincoln High School Railsplitter Speech and Debate Tournament. The Railsplitter will run Friday, December 14th and Saturday, December 15th. All teams, both in-state and out-of-state schools, are welcome to participate.

All speech events will be held on Friday, December 14th. All debate events will be held on Saturday, December 15th.

We will offer the following speech and debate events:

Speech - DI, HI, POI, OO, Poetry/Prose, Spontaneous Speaking, Duo, Mixed Extemp, and Informative.

Debate - PF (varsity and novice divisions if possible), and Congress (open division).

WE WILL OFFER THE JANUARY NSDA TOPIC IN PUBLIC FORUM DEBATE. The Railsplitter is one of the only opportunities in the area to use the January topic prior to the IHSSA State Debate Tournament, so is a wonderful opportunity to prepare for that event.

We appreciate your support and welcome any questions that you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at or (515) 242 7829. We look forward to seeing you and your teams in December!
