Glenbrooks Speech and Debate Tournament

2022 — Northbrook and Online, IL/US

Dear Colleague:

Welcome to the 43rd edition of The Glenbrooks Speech & Debate Tournament November 19-21, 2022. This year, speech will be hosted at Glenbrook North. Congress and policy will be hosted at Glenbrook South. All Lincoln Douglas and Public Forum divisions will be online. While it is our intent to hold some events in-person, factors could require us to move the entire tournament online. Therefore, we highly recommend that any travel arrangements you make are refundable so in the event we need to shift our intended in-person events online, you don't lose money on travel costs.  

In order to get off the waitlist and into the tournament you need to do two things:

1. Upload the school permission form as a pdf signed by a school administrator on official letterhead. 

2. Pay the tournament the entry fees you owe AND include your tabroom invoice with your payment. 

We strongly recommend you pay by credit card because we see the payment usually within a day and can let your team into the tournament faster. If you pay by check, the payment won't get posted until our business office receives it and posts it for us to see. Remember, just because you are on the waitlist, that does not mean you are guaranteed entry into the tournament. When spots are full, we won't let more teams off the waitlist. 

If you want to pay by credit card, upload your school permission form (see above) and email Michael for instructions. Please know, there is a non-refundable $2.95 credit card fee for each increment of $100 you owe. So, if you owe $101 - the fee is $2.95 x 2, if you owe $201 - the fee is $2.95 x 3, etc. The system will automatically add the credit card fee - you should not. 

Please make sure if you send a check, you send it to the correct address. If you send it to the old address, we will not get your check. You must include your tabroom invoice with your check. If you do not send your invoice, it will slow down the processing of your payment and you will remain on the waitlist longer. Please double check with your business office that they will send your entry check to the address and with your tabroom invoice.
