How to Lodge a Protest
If a debater feels there has been a violation of the NPDL Round Rules which is eligible for protest, they should do the following immediately after the round is completed:
1. Contact their Coach or Chaperone (“Coach”) and discuss the issue.
2. If their Coach agrees, the Coach should use the Protest Google Form to provide details of the alleged offense for the Protest Committee to review. Only a Coach (or tournament staff) may file a protest (see Article XIII, Section 1.A of the Legislative Code)
3. The Protest Committee will meet expeditiously to review the protest and resolve the issue as per the NPDL Legislative Code.
Debaters, Coaches and Judges should familiarize themselves with the applicable sections of the NPDL Round Rules (seeArticle XIIof the Legislative Code)
