Stratford Novice Fall Invitational

2019 — Milpitas, CA, CA/US

Events

DEBATE

For Debate, Stratford will host both Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum. While this is a Novice tournament, we will not use the Novice topics for either event.

Lincoln-Douglas

The topic for Lincoln-Douglas is TBD. Students will be permitted to use laptops in round, but they are not to use wifi during the round. Students using digital equipment must have some way to present their cards to their opponents if asked in cross, so either bring a paper copy or another reading device to present cards upon request. Failure to be able to present requested information will have repercussions.

Public Forum

The topic for Public Forum is TBD. Again, students will be permitted to use laptops in round, but they are not to use wifi during the round; no researching during round. Students using digital equipment must have some way to present their cards to their opponents if asked in cross, so either bring a paper copy or another reading device to present cards upon request. Failure to be able to present requested information will have repercussions.

SPEECH

We will have four events in Speech at this tournament: Original OratoryDramatic InterpHumorous Interp, and Duo Interp.
