The UNLV Debate Team is pleased to invite your school to the UNLV Golden Desert Debate Tournament. The tournament will be hosted on the campus of the UNLV February 4-6, 2023. We pledge to offer incredible high-level debate competition, reasonable fees, world famous Las Vegas style hospitality, and a tournament run efficiently, on-time, and fairly.

This year our tournament will have varsity and novice divisions in policy debate and Lincoln-Douglas debate and a varsity division in public forum debate and Congressional Debate. Tournament registration will be held exclusively on

All entries will be placed on a wait list until all fees are paid; the earlier you register for the wait list AND pay, the earlier I can confirm your entry and you can proceed with other arrangements. Being on the wait list does not guarantee your entry in the tournament; payment does. Please do not make plane reservations until I have removed all of your teams from the wait list.

We look forward to welcoming you to FABULOUS LAS VEGAS in early February. Please contact me directly if you have questions.
