A Knight Before Christmas Hanks Classic
2023 — El Paso, TX/US
The Hanks Speech and Debate program would like to welcome you to the 2023
Hanks Knights Tournament. The tournament will be IN-PERSON at Hanks High
School on December 15th and 16th, 2023. We will be offering the complete
set of events in IE’s and LD, PF, and Congressional debate. If any events fail to meet
qualifying numbers, then the event will be dropped.
*Hanks students will be competing at this event*
Congressional Debate will be debating the following pieces of legislation Numbers 21-30 (Prelims) , numbers 11-20 (Finals) of the TFA Fall 2023 Docket.
Please refer to the schedule for event times and cross entry rules. All cross-entries are
at the student’s own risk. If a student does not make their round on-time they may be
dropped, regardless of the reason. Out-rounds will be paneled only if we have enough
judges available. We will break brackets in debate out-rounds.
We will do our best to accelerate the schedule if/when possible, so please pay close
attention to the postings and updates.
More information is coming soon.
