Salado UIL Tournament that Teaches

2020 — NSDA Campus, TX/US

Welcome to the “Tournament That Teaches” for novice and varsity competitors. In the morning, novice students will participate in educational sessions conducted by some of the best instructors in the state and in the afternoon they will have “educational” rounds. Novice students will be provided with cases, briefs and other materials. Varsity students will compete in a traditional tournament. We will offer all traditional UIL speaking events (CX debate, LD debate, Congress, Persuasive, Information, Prose and Poetry. These tournaments are intended for schools or teams that prefer "UIL style" forensics. 

We will be using tabroom for registration and balloting. We will use NSDA campus for virtual rounds.
