2023 — Waco, TX/US

The Midway High School Speech & Debate team would like to invite you and your squad to the MHS Winter Blast TFA Speech & Debate Tournament to be held ONLINE on Saturday, January 28th, 2023. All events will be held synchronously.

We will host competition in all TFA events, including Congress. There will be three preliminary rounds of Policy (CX), Lincoln-Douglas (LD), and Public Forum (PF) debates followed by elim rounds. There will be one preliminary round and semis/finals for IE and Interp events.

All divisions of CX, LD and PFD will use the current varsity level NSDA topics. Congress will use the TFA Legislative Docket (11-15 for prelims and 16-20 for finals).

The entry deadline is 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 26th.

Although we will be hiring some judges, it is our expectation that schools will also bring their own required judges, based on entries, who are available to judge every round. If you are able to bring any additional judges, please let us know. We love having more judges!

If you have any questions, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Thank you,

Susan Jones

Speech & Debate Coordinator
