The Samuelson Sweeps

2018 — Lincoln, NE/US

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Lincoln East Debate Team, parents, and coaches invite you to attend our 33rd annual  Samuelson Sweeps Debate Tournament on Saturday, January 12, 2019.

For three decades the Spartan Invitational has provided challenging competition in a wide range of forensic events, and this year's tournament will be no exception. We offer competitive experiences in Lincoln-Douglas, Cross Examination, and Public Forum Debates, as well as Student Congress.   

In addition to top-notch competition, our concession stand and judges'/coaches' lounge will feature a cornucopia of wholesome (and not-so-wholesome) fare.  We want to treat you and your students to the best overall tournament experience possible.  We offer a well-run, on-time tournament with good food, good judging, and nice awards. 

 If you have questions about the 2019 Samuelson Sweeps, please don't hesitate to contact us.  Good luck as the season progresses, and we look forward seeing you in January!
