The Roundup at Ridgevue

2024 — Nampa, ID/US

Welcome to the 2024 Roundup at Ridgevue

Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16

We will be offering 4 prelim rounds, plus elimination rounds, for debate as well as 3 prelim rounds of all 14 IHSAA speech events. Debate will start on Friday (Congress, LD, PF, and we will offer Worlds School Debate) and end on Saturday. All speech events will run on Saturday. As it is early in the season, we will not be offering finals in speech.

NEW - In an effort to introduced more students to WSD, we will offer it this year in a 3-person format. For more information, please check the NSDA website.

We will follow the IHSAA rules in all events. This year's schedule is different from the past and I hope it will flow better to make each day enjoyable for students and judges, as well as being humane. We will present awards to all speech "finalists" (top 6) as well as the top novice speaker in each speech event. In debate, we will have elimination rounds (gold, silver, and bronze). We will present certificates to all PO's in Congress as well as top speaker awards in the other debate formats. An appropriate number of sweepstakes awards will be presented in both speech and debate, as well as overall and a squad efficiency award.

We will offer concessions both days (there are NO food options near RHS) as well as a judges' lounge each day with meals and snacks.

We hope you will join us for two days of competition and camaraderie!
