Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to attend the Hybrid Katy Taylor High School Fall Classic Forensic Tournament

on November 11-13, 2021.  Debate Events will be virtual on NSDA Campus and Individual events (Including Extemporaneous Speaking) will be LIVE at Taylor High School on Saturday.  We are excited to be a qualifying tournament for two national tournaments including a FULL FINALS (top 16) qualifier for the Congress TOC.  We are also a finals bid in Public Forum and a qualifier for the Individual Events portion of the Kentucky TOC.  In addition, the Taylor tournament will be a qualifier for the National Individual Events Tournament of Champions (NIETOC).

We are also a TFA qualifying tournament and will be offering all TFA events as well as prose and poetry.  We will also offer a novice division in extemp, novice interpretation, PF, Policy, and LD if entry numbers warrant.  A novice for our tournament will be defined as a student in his/her first year of high school competition in the current academic school year. 

The championship divisions in debate will consist of 4 preliminary rounds (5 rounds in Varsity Public Forum) leading to an elimination bracket.  World Schools Debate and all novice divisions in debate will consist of  3 preliminary rounds leading to eliminations.  

We have limited facilities, so it is important that you complete your entry as soon as possible.  We cannot accept entries after our facilities are full. 

We will follow TFA rules in all events. Coaches unfamiliar with TFA events and rules can access information on the TFA website at www.txfa.org.

All entries must be submitted via the Tabroom.com website.

Please note that, as space is available, novice students from the Taylor speech and debate team may be competing in the preliminary rounds in a variety of events to gain competitive experience.  Wins and losses in debate will be counted as regular contestants.  However, no Taylor students will be allowed to advance into elimination rounds in any event.

We hope to see you in November.
