Kentucky District Qualifier
for the 2018 National Tournament
February 11 REMINDERS AND NEWS
Make certain that you get the NFL points for your students updated on the NSDA website. Having those points up-to-date will allow your team to maximize your degrees and entry size. Also, make sure that your kiddos register for their NSDA accounts (earning a little star at the end of their names) so you can register them for the district tournament.
REGISTRATION FOR DISTRICTS
There is a ton of paperwork to have ready before the upcoming district tournament. You will need to track down ISBN numbers and get all of your ducks in a row. It’s not difficult, but it does take time. PLEASE START EARLY. Also, the TABROOM website (http://kentucky.tabroom.com/) is once again open for registration. (Thanks to Steve Meadows for helping to work out some of the bugs and wooly-boogers!!!) Please continue to put in your entries and judges and let us know if you need any assistance!!! We are happy to help!!! J
If your team will be sending in Congress bills/resolutions, please keep a couple of things in mind:
- CONGRESS LEGISLATION IS DUE .
- Use NSDA GUIDELINES for formatting the legislation. You can find those here: https://www.
congressionaldebate.org/ resources/legislation- templates
- Kentucky-oriented legislation for Kentucky laws or about state education, etc. do not apply to a national congress that uses NSDA rules. Therefore, do not submit those bills or resolutions for debate as they are not applicable.
