Buffalo UIL Tournament that Teaches
2021 — Buffalo, TX/US
September 11th, 2021
@ Buffalo High School (IN-PERSON)
In the morning, novice students will participate in educational sessions conducted by some of the best instructors in the state and in the afternoon they will have “educational” rounds. Novice students will be provided with cases, briefs and other materials. Varsity students will compete in a traditional tournament. The tournament is intended for schools or teams that prefer "UIL style" forensics but can be beneficial to all teams and competitors!
