Peach State Classic

2022 — NSDA Campus, GA/US


The Carrollton High School Speech and Debate Team is happy to announce Peach State 2022, which will be held in-person at Carrollton High School except for our Public Forum (PF) events.

Public Forum will function as a hybrid, which will give opportunity for debate for both our in-person attendees and online participants.

If a Public Forum debate team comes in-person to Carrollton High School, they will be assigned a room in the school from which they can debate–debates will then function completely on NSDA Campus. The same will occur for Public Forum judges, and any judges who are in-person at Carrollton High School will be assigned a room in the school.

Any Public Forum debaters who do not attend the in-person tournament–the event will function as a normal online tournament. All Public Forum rounds, regardless of in-person attendance, will be published on NSDA Campus and all Public Forum debates will take place online.  If you have questions, email:


Policy Debate will be in-person for all competitors, but judges may participate online.
A debate with an in-person judge will operate just like a regular in-person debate.
A debate with an online judge will have all four competitors in the same room, but the students will sign into NSDA Campus so they can see their judge.
We will have adult monitors circulating to supervise classrooms where the judge is online.
Schools must still of course have an appropriate number of adult chaperones on site throughout the tournament.
We hope you still bring as many judges in person as possible, but our goal is that this change means that you can bring all students who are interested in competing without being panicked about finding judges who can make it to Carrollton on site.

We are excited to offer an online Middle School Division
