TFA State

2021 — Online, TX/US

Welcome to TFA State 2021!

Congratulations on qualifying for the 2021 Texas Forensic Association’s Online State Tournament. The TFA State Tournament is one of the largest of its kind and marks the culmination of the competitive TFA season. Over 1,500 students from all five TFA regions attend the tournament each year. To qualify this year, students must earn at least ten points in at least one TFA event. Additionally, qualifiers in speech, debate, and performance events are eligible for college scholarships. The average qualifier for this prestigious tournament commits hundreds of practice hours to their specific event(s).

The Texas Forensic Association is committed to encouraging students to become effective communicators, critical thinkers, and engaged, ethical members of our democratic society. Our organization is growing rapidly, as there are over 300 active TFA member schools. This year marks the 49th TFA State Tournament.

Each year, the tournament is hosted by one of the five TFA regions. This year due to the pandemic we will be hosting the state tournament all online.  I would like to thank our wonderful EC members and all the past and current coaches who will be working behind the scene to keep this online tournament running efficiently.

Once again, congratulations on making it to what I hope will be the first and last Online TFA State Tournament. You represent the finest in speech and debate that Texas has to offer. We are looking forward to another amazing tournament full of outstanding competition.
