Des Moines North Polar Bear Open

2017 — Des Moines, IA/US

Des Moines North High School and our Forensics program welcome you to our annual Polar Bear Open!  We are hoping that you will choose to come to Des Moines the weekend of October 13-14. Both in state and out of state schools are welcome to attend!

We will be offering the full range of individual events as well as most debate events.  Please review the schedule for entry information. Individual events will be on Friday evening.  Congress and Public Forum will be on Saturday only.  We are hoping to have enough Novice Congress students for a separate house.  There will be awards for Novice Congress, even if those students are mixed into Varsity houses. 

Please register as soon as possible to help us with our planning. Parking should not be a major problem as we have plenty of parking in front of the building.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have on my cell phone at 515-210-2159 or you may email me at
