Capitol Congress

2022 — Austin, TX/US


11th  Annual Austin Capitol Congressional Debate Tournament

Thursday, December 1 2022

We are so excited to announce that the Annual Austin Capitol Congressional Debate Tournament is on for 2022 and
is IN PERSON! This tournament is unique as students debate in the actual congress chambers of the Texas Capitol
Building in Austin, Texas. This is a one-day Congressional Debate Tournament and entry is limited to the first 175
students who register.

In order to make sure that each student gets the most educational experience possible, we will be offering three
divisions for debate; Senate, House, and a Novice section. Each section will have their own final round chambers.
Our goal is to provide a full, fun day of congressional debate in the magnificent Texas State Capitol Building.
Special thanks to Senator Bryan Hughes and his staff for their continued support and assistance in making this
tournament possible!
