We are excited to invite you to the

W.B. Ray High School TFA/NIETOC Qualifier

All entries will be wait-listed initially. Students may enter 3 IEs in each section. If entering extemp, they may only enter in one other Section A event. Students need to report to extemp first! If not in extemp draw, students run the risk of losing time or being forfeited. Be wary of CX debate and extemp entries. Enter at your own risk. Brackets will not be broken in debate.

Congress will use items 1, 2, 3, 9, and 10 in prelims and 17, 11, 15, 19, and 16 in finals. Docket is set in that order.
