James Nikki Rowe TFA

2021 — McAllen, TX/US

Dear Coaches,


The combined James Nikki Rowe and McAllen Memorial TFA Team (Lamar Theatre) would like to invite you to our TFA IQT on January 7-9, 2021. We will be offering a three-day virtual tournament.


We will offer the following events: Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Congress, Domestic Extemp, International Extemp, Dramatic Interp, Humorous Interp, Informative, Original Oratory, Program Oral Interp, Duet, Duo, Prose, Poetry, Novice Prose, and Novice Poetry.


All IE's will be asynchronous except for Extemp. IE videos should be uploaded by Wednesday, January 6th at 9:00 pm.

Entries must be made by Friday, January 1st, 2021 at 9:00 pm. Drops and adds will be taken until Monday, January 4th at 9:00 pm. Entry fees will be assessed at that time. Penalty for drops after that date will result in the loss of entry fees. 


An adult supervisor for each school must be immediately available to perform necessary tournament duties if called upon. Failure to do so may result in the tournament making necessary decisions such as removing a competitor, walk over an entry, or adjudicating a protest. Frequent inability to make contact with a coach for tournament-related matters may result in that school's students being removed from the tournament.


Debate/Congress Topics:


LD - Jan/Feb 2021 NSDA LD topic.


Congress - Spring 2021 TFA Docket
