LD - Resolved: A public health emergency justifies limiting civil liberties.
Each student entered in LD must provide (1) judge to cover 3 preliminary rounds and 1 elimination round.
There are no requirements for judges in terms of experience. We hope for this tournament to be accessible to all students, offer a wide variety of feedback from various different judges, and to accurately reflect the NSDA Nationals judging pool.
LD - $15.00 entry fee per student
PF - $25.00 entry fee per team
Assuming an entry is unable to provide a judge to cover their judge obligation, they may have the option to pay a judge fee. This will allow us to hire a judge to cover their obligation.
LD - $40.00 judge fee per entry
