Brookings Bell

2023 — Brookings, SD/US

*** Update: we are pleased to announce that we are a NIETOC Bid Tournament this year!***

We are excited to welcome you to the 2023 Brookings Bell, live and in person, December 15-16 at Brookings High School.

We will offer 3 rounds of IEs and a final on Friday. In addition to novice and varsity extemp, oratory and (new this year) info, we will be running combined novice and varsity events in DI, HI, DUO, and POI. Coaches, please make sure that you clearly mark your novices in Tabroom (and remove the novice designation from all varsity competitors). We will award the top novice in each of these categories.

In addition to IEs, we will again be running 3 congress sessions on Friday and Saturday. If numbers warrant, we will have separate novice and varsity houses.

We will offer 5 rounds and a final of varsity PF and LD debate on Saturday.
