Princeton Classic

2021 — NSDA Campus, NJ/US


October 4, 2021

Dear Forensics Coach,


On behalf of the Princeton Debate Panel, it is our pleasure to invite you and your forensics team to the 2021 Princeton Classic, to be hosted by Princeton University from Friday, December 3rd, 2021 to Sunday, December 5th, 2021. The tournament will be conducted online using NSDA Campus. 


The tournament will consist of competition in Varsity, JV and Novice Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum Debate, Congressional Debate, and eight Speech events. We offer five prelim rounds in Individual Events, six prelim rounds in LD and PF, and three sessions in Congress. Semifinalists in Varsity LD, octafinalists in PF, elimination round participants in IE and Extemp, and finalists in Congress will earn a bid to their respective Tournament of Champions.


Joining us this year as Tab Director is Jim Menick, along with Sheryl Kaczmarek of Lexington (MA), Jeff Kahn of Strath Haven (PA), and Joe Vaughan of Scarsdale (NY).


To make this process as fair as possible, we will place all registered entries on the waitlist which we will clear two weeks after registration opens. Schools with outstanding balances from last year will not be accepted into the tournament.

This invitation should answer any questions you may have about the tournament; please take the time to read it in its entirety, since some things have changed from previous years. If you need any additional information, please email us at We hope your school year and forensics season are off to a great start and we look forward to seeing you all virtually this December!


Best wishes, 

Wolf Cukier, Saumya Malik, Jasmine Zhang
