Bring On Big Questions by DSM Hoover

2024 — Des Moines, IA/US

Welcome to Bring On Big Questions by DSM Hoover!

We're hosting a "mini" tournament -- one day, after school, for a few hours to celebrate the year's near-end. We hope you'll join us.

Big Questions is a great opportunity for speakers of all debate events to hone their skills as it combines the philosophy-based topics of Lincoln-Douglas, has a format similar to Public Forum, and questioning periods like Congress. Whatever your regular event may be, Big Questions meets you there.

Whether you're prepping for Nationals, the Last-Chance Qualifier the weekend following, or just keeping up your debate skills, we'd love to host you once more this season.

This is an entry-free FREE tournament sponsored by an NSDA grant --the only charges will be penalties of $75 per missing judge and nuisance fees of $10 for each no-show and drop past 6pm the night prior.
