Cupid Shot me in my After School Congress

2022 — Online, CO/US

Need to get students enough NSDA points to qualify for the district qualification tournaments?  Have students that want to get to the next NSDA honor society level?  Need to get your students to practice for the qualification season?  With the rare alignment of our town and school name, a national holiday, and my student’s strange and slightly unhealthy attraction to Congressional Debate, we warmly welcome you to our fourth annual after-school student congress on February 15th, 2022.



Tabroom will be open for online registration on November 15th.  New entries and registration are due on February 11th at 5 pm on the website. A coach or adult responsible for the team must be online during the tournament.


SCHEDULE: Registration: 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm   ALL TIMES MOUNTAIN

Round 1: 4:45 pm - 6:15 pm

Break: 6:15 pm - 6:45 pm

Round 2: 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Awards: 8:30 pm



Please submit legislation by email ( or via Tabroom.  Submitted legislation is due by February 4th with the final docket posted on Tabroom by February 8th.  Templates are also on Tabroom.



We will create as many chambers as required due to the number of registrants and will aim for an average of 12 students.  Awards will be presented to PO, Outstanding Speaker, and Superior Speaker in each chamber.  No impeaching the PO, no walk-on legislation, direct questions, and no amendments.


Two events! Congressional Debate and Character Congress

For our speech event students that have been left out of traditional congress, we offer a new event we discovered from our friends in Utah.  Students will be provided with a choice of three characters.  They can choose a character per round, speakers will be evaluated on how well they embody and maintain their selected character in their speeches, questions, and motions.


LOCATION:  Online due to our alone together time - we will use NSDA Campus or Zoom.


We look forward to your participation in our tournament!
