Damus Hollywood Invitational and USC Round Robin

2018 — Los Angeles, CA, CA/US


USC Round Robin


We invite you to apply to the USC Round Robin.  We are offering the opportunity for high-quality competition for up to 8 teams on November 1-2, 2018. Teams are then encouraged to stay and compete at the Damus Hollywood Invitational at Notre Dame High School from November 3-5, 2018.



We will be dividing teams into two pods. Each pod will debate against a balanced schedule of seven preliminary debates with the top team from each pod advancing to a final elimination round. There will be two judges per preliminary round and three to five judges for the final round.



We ask that each team bring one judge per team. We will do our best to keep judging commitments modest with substantial judging from the USC Debate squad, staff and LA debate community.



All competitors are invited to stay at the Radisson hotel next to USC’s campus. All competition will take place on USC’s campus. Further hotel information can be found on the website under the “Hotels” tab.



$200 per team
