Salado Online Tournament that Teaches

2022 — NSDA Campus, TX/US

Salado High School Presents The Tournament that Teaches

Online September 17th, 2022

Welcome to the “Tournament That Teaches” for novice and varsity competitors. In the morning, novice students will participate in educational sessions conducted by some of the best instructors in the state and in the afternoon they will have “educational” rounds. Novice students will be provided with cases, briefs and other materials.

New to this year we will be adding intermediate/advanced lectures for the varsity CX and LD students to attend in the morning. There will be two lectures during each time slot. Students may pick which lecture they would like to attend for each time slot. In the afternoon, varsity students will have two rounds. 

We will offer all traditional UIL speaking events (CX debate, LD debate, Congress, Persuasive, Information, Prose and Poetry. These tournaments are intended for schools or teams that prefer "UIL style" forensics. 

We will be using tabroom for registration and balloting. We will use NSDA campus for virtual rounds. 

For information on how to make a tabroom account check out this video:

Keep in mind students will need to have their own tabroom account created and linked to the school/institution they attend and an email address attached/linked to their account.
