THE BIG STUFF:

  • Initial entry limit of 6 per event, but we anticipate clearing the waitlist.

  • Each school is responsible for providing judges to cover their entries. Additional entries will be allowed based on ability to provide judges. Let us know if this poses an issue. We are recruiting heavily from alumni, parents, and the community.

Fees: Entry fees will be $8 per asynchronous competitor; $10 per competitor for live events. Checks should be made payable to Fairview High School c/o Speech and Debate Team. 

 

Judging: Each school is responsible for providing judges to cover their entries. Judges must be available for the three preliminary rounds and the final round. One judge must be provided for every two debate entries. This helps us ensure we can single flight rounds. One judge must be provided for every 6 events entries. Judges must be entered in Tabroom by January 13th @ 5pm, final updates by January 15th @ 5pm. Judges are responsible for checking for ballots at the appropriate times. 

 

Tabulation: 

  • All debate rounds will be powered.

  • All undefeated debaters will break to finals, subject to judge availability. (Note: we will evaluate adding semi-finals as entries and judges allow.)

  • Places will be determined by win-loss, strength of opp, and speaker points.

  • Team awards will be determined by percentage of entries breaking to a finals round, not total numbers

 

Day of Event: All schools must check-in online by 7:30am. All dropped entries must be made online or reviewed with Tab by 7:30am. We will send additional details the week of the tournament.
