Kentucky District Tournament
2020 — US
Kentucky District Qualifier
for the 2020 National Tournament
Entry and Judge Requirements
Student Entries: Students may enter two speech/debate events (HI, DI, duo, info, OO, POI, IX, USX, LD, PFD, CX) in addition to congress (Senate and House). Students who are doubling in team events (duo, PFD, CX) must do so with the same partner. Students may NOT double in debate events. Students who are entered in more than one event must complete the single entry letter of intent, which is signed by the coach and must be turned in by on-site registration.
School Limits: Each school receives a total number of speech/debate entries based on its strength (members and degrees). Within that total, only four entries per event are allowed. Schools also receive congress quotas based on strength.
Judges: You must provide 1 judge for every 4 entries in speech and congress. You must provide 1 judge for every 2 entries in debate. The head coach of each school must be listed as a judge. We want to send our best kids to nationals, and we want the best judges we can get! All judges are expected to judge public forum, regardless of whether or not a school has PFD entries. Congress is treated as a separate tournament and a judge can be in a speech or debate pool AND congress. Enter your congress judges before you enter them in speech/debate, otherwise they won’t show as available. You may be asked to reduce your entry if you cannot supply adequate judging.
