The 2017 Emporia High School Invitational Debate Tournament will take place on Friday-Saturday, September 22-23, 2017

Registration will OPEN on Tabroom.com at 5:00 pm, Friday, August 18th.

* When registering, please supply all requested information.

Registration will CLOSE on Tabroom.com at 5:00 pm, Tuesday, September 19 th.

* Entries received after September 19th will not be guaranteed.

Entry fees, $6.00 per team, will be accessed at 5:00 pm, Tuesday, September 19th.

If you “drop” a team(s) after September 19th, you will still be obligated for the accessed fee(s).

Coaches will have through 4:00 PM, Wednesday, September 20th to move teams between divisions, and adjust/change the names of debaters as they were first entered.



All entries will initially be "wait listed."  We anticipate that we will be able to accommodate up to 100 total teams.

You are allowed up to 3 total teams entered in each division.

If you seek additional teams beyond the 3 maximum in each division, email Scott Bonnet:  sbonnet@usd253.org.

We will strive to allow teams to be entered in a timely manner.  The first criteria for consideration is the provision of both debaters first and last names.    

Tournament Specifics:

2 divisions: Open, Novice (Sat ONLY)

Kansas Novice Affirmative Case Limitations will be adhered to during this tournament.  See invitation or the "Custom Page" to the right for specifics.

The Open Division will “break” to Quarters, Semis, Finals 

Judges:  As is true of most Kansas Invitational tournaments, we will strive to recruit judges for all rounds commensurate with the number of teams entered.  If you enter more than 4 total teams, please know that coaches, assistants, and/or sponsors present may be asked to judge rounds during our tournament.
