2020 Hannie Schaft Debate Invitational


@ Southwestern College




The SWC Debate Team and the School of Arts, Communication & Social Sciences are proud to invite your school to the 2020 Hannie Schaft invitational debate tournament at Southwestern College from February 7th-9th, 2020. Hannie Schaft was a debater in Holland during WW2 who used her debating prowess to make a difference in the real world fighting the Nazis. At SWC we honor her memory by dedicating our program to her ideals of peace and justice.


Our tournament will feature 6 preliminary rounds of Novice, JV and Open competition as the entry allows. We will follow CEDA format, topic, and bylaws. San Diego County is a beautiful place this time of year when many debaters could use a respite from the cold and snow. We will make every attempt to make the Schaft one of the most hospitable and friendly tournaments on the competitive schedule. We hope to see you here!
