Lamar Texan Classic TFA and Speech TOC

2021 — NSDA Campus, TX/US

The Lamar Speech & Debate team welcomes you to the Lamar Texan Classic 2020 this year on January 28th through 30th, 2020. We are proud to serve as a Texas Forensic Association Invitational Qualifying Tournament and are committed to a quality tournament experience for students, coaches, and judges. As in past years, we will offer multiple sections for entries and a competitive experience for all contestants.

Asynchronous event video links must be submitted no later than 1/25/2021 at 5:00 pm; preliminary rounds of the asynchronous events will be judged Wednesday, 1/27, with semifinals rounds held on Thursday, 1/28 and finals held on Friday, 1/29.

We are thrilled to have Ryan Nassif in our tabroom and Chellie Martinez as our judge coordinator. For questions regarding judging contracts, please contact Chellie by email at chellie.martinez@gmail.com

Attention Parents, Judges, and Volunteers:
We must ensure that all our judges, both paid and volunteer, are background-checked through VIPS (our background check system). This must be completed each year, regardless if you’ve completed VIPS in previous years.

This requires two steps:  
(1)Orientation Training (https://www.houstonisdpsd.org/dmol/VIPS/index.html#/)
(2)Background Check Application (https://apps.raptortech.com/Apply/NjcyOmVuLVVT)

Please see the published invitation for further details and event specific information.
