Dear Coaches:  

The Chesapeake District Committee welcomes you and your team to the District Tournament, to be held (as previously announced at last year’s tournament) on February 24th at Loyola Blakefield High School in Towson, MD.

The tournament features competition in speech, debate, and congress events.  Top entries will qualify for the National Speech and Debate Association National Tournament, to be held this year in June in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Debate events will be using February topics.

To enhance the educational aspect of the tournament, critique sheets will be provided in all rounds this year, not just in debate.

At the conclusion of the tournament, in addition to announcing the qualifiers, the district will award the District Student of the Year, Alumnus of the Year, Communicator of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Principal of the Year.  Information on nominations is contained in this packet.

Please read the information in the invitation carefully, as this tournament is different than many others that you may be accustomed to attending.  The link to the invitation is on the upper right portion of this page.

If you have any questions, you can reach Charles Donovan, District Chair at cdonovan@loyolablakefield.org .

Sincerely,

Charles Donovan, Gavin Mease, Monty Crawford, Andrew Monteleone, & Steve Sprouse

The Chesapeake District Committee
