Lexington Winter Invitational

2021 — NSDA Campus, MA/US

Welcome to the Lexington Winter Invitational 2021!

Essentials now -- many more details later.
1) We will be online using NSDA Campus!
2) We will offer Varsity, JV and Novice Divisions in PF and LD -- all events will be single flighted with the possible exception of the first full elim in VLD depending on the number of available judges (and the prefs).
3) We will offer Varsity JV, Open Novice and Packet Novice divisions in Policy. The packet division will use the Northeastern Modified version of the NDCA packet (link to follow).
4) Rounds start Saturday morning -- Jan. 16, 2021. Only late elims will be held on Monday Jan. 18. Please check out the Schedule tab for a tentative (but reasonably solid) schedule.
5) JV divisions are designed for students with previous middle school experience in any form of debate who ought not be debating in novice divisions, since novice divisions are limited to competitors in their FIRST year of any sort of debate competition. Third and fourth year competitors ought not debate in JV unless their previous competitive experience is ALL in Middle School.
6) Entry fees have been reduced to balance the lack of meals for students with the cost for rooms and for the shipping of awards.
7) We will have an Equity Officer to assist us in ensuring that our tournament is a safe space for all participants.
We look forward to welcoming you in January -- please check back often for additional information!
