The first session will be from 5pm to 7pm, and the second session will be from 8pm to 10pm. The tournament will be held online and use Tabroom's NSDA Campus.

Cost for each student entry is $10 and used to secure judges. Schools are not required to provide judges.

Each school is encouraged to write and submit a piece of legislation; it does not need to be tied to an author. Legislation must be received by Friday, September 22nd.
