The Jungle at Idaho Falls High School

2021 — Idaho Falls, ID/US

Welcome to

The Jungle at Idaho Falls HS


We are excited to begin the season with a two-day debate only tournament on October 29-30! We will be modeling Friday's Novice schedule off the University of Utah's format. Friday, Novice will be in workshops to help get them more prepared for competition. These workshops will be lead by coaches! Saturday, Novice will compete in a four preliminary-round competition. Varsity will have a full two-day tournament that includes five preliminary rounds and 2-3 elimination rounds.


FEES- We will be implementing new fees that are reflected upon the agreement Southeast Idaho coaches made in the Summer of 2021. Therefore, each student entry is $5. Because of this, we may need to implement cost-saving measures, including having less extravagant awards. We hope you will help support our push to make Southeast Idaho debate more inclusive to all students!


COVID- We will be implementing the NFHS COVID suggestions for Speech Arts. Masks will be required between rounds, and while students are not speaking. A student can remove their mask as soon as they're in front of the room and right before they're about to speak. Immediately following their speech, they will mask back up. In debate, only the person directly speaking should have their mask off. Masks will be required for judges, coaches, and students. 


CONCESSIONS- We will have concessions! Please ask your students to bring money to support our concessions! 


JUDGES- Please register your judges using their account. We will also be using electronic ballots so make sure they bring an electronic device! Also, we cannot accomodate teams that do not cover their judging entry. We have no money to pay for judges, so please make sure to cover your judging entry!


Coaches- if you are willing to offer your support during a novice workshop, please email me at .  


Hope to see you all at The Jungle!
