We embrace and strive to adhere to NSDA's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement: 
The National Speech & Debate Association is committed to modeling and fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion for all speech and debate communities.
We are continuously transforming our organization to reflect and operationalize the values of equity, integrity, respect, leadership, and service.
We will take responsibility.
We will heed, learn, and evolve.
We will work conscientiously to model and foster an inclusive and equitable speech and debate experience for all.
Lastly (almost), with so many front range schools having to still hold virtual tournaments, we have decided (as a Western Slope District) that we will do whatever it takes to hold in-person tournaments. We will follow CDPHE safety guidelines that should meet all school's needs. Thus, all adults, competitors, judges, and attendees must agree to mask appropriately throughout the entire tournament while indoors unless they are actively performing or actively eating/drinking. Please be clear about this in your communication with your team and any adults attending.
We look forward to seeing you at our tournament!
