Tournament Format:  We use a “double-down” elimination format for speech/debate (congress follows a traditional tournament format).  This means that contestants scoring in the top half of each round get an “up” and those in the bottom half get a "down.”  Two downs and you’re out. This continues until we have reached a final round/determined national qualifiers.
