Sand Lizard Super Hero Classic
2024 — Dardanelle, AR/US
Fall Semester has been very long, we hope that you and your team get refreshed during the Holiday break and are able to attend the 7th Annual Dardanelle Sand Lizard Classic on January 12th and 13th! This year we are SUPER HERO THEMED! Throw on the costume (or T shirt) of your favorite hero and fly to the only small school in Arkansas that has consistently hosted a tournament in the past decade.
The Sand Lizard Classic is a qualifier for the Arkansas State Championship and hopes to be a qualifier to the Tournament of Champions in Dramatic Interpretation, Original Oratory, Informative Speaking, and Poetry/ Prose. In addition, we are looking to follow the footsteps of our friends at Mills and LRC by offering the following awards.
· Award for Debate Excellence: presented to a senior debate competitor who actively participates in debate competition and who contributes to their program positively through mentorship and example https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSddpSVmZRlNQ9Ja6SYXiflKH5T7sP73ZoXk0DxRBvT2OWV2ug/viewform?usp=sharing
