Damus Hollywood Invitational
2022 — Sherman Oaks, CA/US
Welcome to the 2022 Damus Hollywood Invitational
Notre Dame High School will host the Damus Hollywood Invitational on November 11-13, 2022. Novice and varsity policy will be hosted mostly in-person at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks.** Novice and varsity LD will be hosted in-person at Harvard-Westlake's Upper School in Studio City. These campuses are about a mile from each other. The open WSD division will be hosted as a hybrid event with in-person and online entries competing against each other.
All competitors must represent the school for which they are currently enrolled, have principal approval to compete as part of the school’s official debate team and have an adult chaperone available throughout the entire tournament. No independent entries will be accepted. No hybrid entries (meaning students from different schools competing together as a single entry in policy or WSD) will be accepted outside of the novice division.
We are a quarterfinal bid to the Tournament of Champions in varsity policy and a semifinal bid to the Tournament of Champions in varsity LD. We also hope to have a diverse national pool of competitors in both varsity policy and LD that will ensure a better points standing for the NDCA Championships.
Invitations and registration for these events will all be posted on this website (see the tabs to the right).
