Running with the Bulls

2022 — NSDA Campus, ID/US

Welcome to the 2022 “Running With The Bulls” Invitational hosted by Mountain View High School.  We are excited and honored to host you on Friday and Saturday, January 14th and 15th, 2022.

We are excited to have you Join us for this unique tournament. Many will argue that the "suit makes the wo/man" and that is what lends credibility to the debate and ensures that we maintain a formal tone.  The reality is that what makes a debater truly credible is the quality of his/her argument and content of their speech. So... to that end, please "come as you are" - dress will be school/dress code appropriate attire (NO pj's and sweats though).

This year, Running with the Bulls will be a debate only tournament, with awards going to all entries making it to elimination rounds. We will have all 4 state debate events, with novice divisions in Lincoln-Douglas, Public Forum and Policy. There will be six preliminary rounds, 2 on Friday and 4 on Saturday.

Congress will have two preliminary sessions and a Super Congress Session will on Saturday. 

When: January 14-15
