  • Tip: In the days ahead, only add new NSDA members that are competing at this meet and pay promptly.  Consider adding other new NSDA members after the 15th to avoid having to reconcile outstanding charges at the Congress meet.

Judges - 

  • You must supply one judge to cover your Congress entries
  • Please remember that District Congress is happening at the same location as an invitational speech tournament. You must meet the judging requirements for each tournament independently (i.e., your speech judges don't count towards Congress, and your Congress judges don't count towards the speech tournament).
