College Prep LD Invitational



The 23rd Annual College Preparatory School Lincoln Douglas Debate Invitational

Saturday and Sunday, December 21-22, 2024

The College Preparatory School Debate Team is pleased to invite you to its twenty-third annual Lincoln Douglas debate invitational. We will offer five and six preliminary rounds of competition in two divisions, Novice and TOC. We are excited to welcome you back to our campus.The Novice and TOC divisions will be held in person on our campus in Oakland, California.

Tournament highlights include:

*Early competition on the NFL January/February topic (in the TOC division), which will be used at the Barkley Forum, Stanford, and Cal tournaments. Novices will debate the November/December topic.

*Experienced judging pool.

*Meals provided free of charge to all judges, coaches, and competitors at the in person competition. Additional meals for observers may be purchased (see concessions tab).

*High quality awards for all elimination round participants, plus a repeat of our tasty speaker award cakes in the open division!

*Small, self-contained campus, perfect for sending students with parent chaperones if the coach cannot attend.

Our purpose in hosting this tournament is to provide a competitive opportunity on the West Coast for Lincoln Douglas debaters.

We like hosting an all Lincoln Douglas tournament, a tournament at which Lincoln Douglas debate is treated with respect, rather than as an afterthought. We are a TOC bid tournament (level TBD at the spring TOC LD Committee Meeting).

If you have questions, please email us We look forward to hosting you in December.
