6. Qualifying numbers -  We are Level 3 again this year; that means we allowed three entries to the National Tournament in every speech and debate event as long as at least 10 entries in each event compete in at least one round. If that minimum is not met by a particular event, only two entries shall be granted in that event. We encourage all schools to bring as large of an entry as possible so that we may have our district represented to our maximum potential at Nationals.

We are using the new NSDA rules in all events. The New District Manual can be found here: https://www.speechanddebate.org/wp-content/uploads/High-School-Unified-Manual-2021-2022.pdf
