*We will attempt to have Novice and Varsity divisions for debate, but divisions are subject to collapse based on the number of entries in each.
The tournament defines novice and varsity as follows:
Varsity LD or PF: A student who competed in 11 or more rounds of debate in the school year 2022-23; or, any student who competed in any debate rounds in the school year 2022-23. If one person on a CX or PF team meets the standards of Varsity, the team must be registered as Varsity.
Novice LD, or PF: A student who has not competed before the current school year or competed in less than 11 debate rounds last school year. If one student in a CX or PF team qualifies as Varsity, the team must compete as Varsity.
Double Entry: A student may double-enter in a maximum of two speech events and one debate event. If double-entered in speech events, it is the student’s responsibility to report to the judges of said events and establish that they are double-entered and will need to adjust speaker order accordingly.
