DUDA HS City Championship

2022 — Dallas, TX/US

DUDA is excited to host you and your students for the High School Winter City Championship of 2022!!!

You can find relevant information on the sidebar to the right - the yellow cluster of buttons - WSD motions are published there.

We are offering the Winter City Championship to celebrate the hard work of our students and coaches during the first semester. As a result, this tournament will offer several unique features:

  1. Separate awards for Comprehensive and Magnet schools will be given in each division.
  2. Sweepstakes awards recognizing both participation and competitive success will be awarded to both Comprehensive and Magnet schools.
  3. All divisions will advance to elimination rounds. This means the top four entries in each division will advance to semi-finals. The semi-final round in each division will be held AFTER awards. Those students advancing (and their coaches) will be provided food and will be finishing later. The FINAL round in each division will be held at the January workshop unless other arrangements are made with DUDA.

To register your entries in the tournament, check out this short video courtesy of our friends at LAMDL.

To register to judge, please click "Judge Sign-Up" above, and select the division you feel qualified to judge. In the "Special Instructions/notes" section, please write a few things identifying yourself - are you a DISD employee? are you a parent? are you a high school student judging novice - what high school do you attend? Please make sure you also note any time restrictions on rounds you can judge.

As a reminder: It is important to make your entry as accurate as possible. Every decision we make, from food orders and bus requests to room allocations, judge recruitment, and tournament staffing is based on entry numbers. We understand that students may face unexpected conflicts, but significant changes in the prior 48 hours impact everyone.

World Schools teams & Policy partnerships must be set by 8:30 AM the morning of the tournament and will not be changed once round 1 begins. Please plan accordingly.

Finally, please check your team’s preparation against this checklist to make sure you have completed everything you need done ahead of the start of the tournament:

  • Have you registered teams in the appropriate divisions?

  • Have you registered yourself and any other coaches your team is bringing as judges on Tabroom?

  • If competing in World Schools, have your students constructed cases for both sides of this tournament's motions?

  • If competing in Novice/JV Policy, have your students constructed 1AC/1NC positions using the Core Files?

  • If competing in Varsity Policy, have your students disclosed their positions on the NDCA wiki?

  • Have you requested a bus with Student Activities?
