Dear Colleagues:

The Department of Communication Studies of Marshall University and the Marshall University Thundering Word Speech and Debate Team are pleased to invite you to virtually attend the 12th Almost Annual Chief Justice Invitational Tournament.

All speech events, including extemp and impromptu, will be asynchronous, and debate will be synchronous.

➢    For speech events, preliminary rounds to be judged from Wednesday, October 27, to Friday, October 29, and elimination rounds to be judged on Saturday, October 30.
➢    For debate events, preliminary rounds and elimination rounds will take place on Friday, October 29, and Saturday, October 30.
We will be offering the following preliminary rounds, all with appropriate elimination rounds and novice categories for events with substantial entries:

➢    3 preliminary rounds of all 11 NFA Individual Events and elimination rounds, as appropriate
➢    6 preliminary rounds of Lincoln-Douglas Debate and elimination rounds, as appropriate
➢    6 preliminary rounds of IPDA Debate and elimination rounds, as appropriate

For events too small to have separate novice and varsity categories, we will recognize the top novice. We will also award Individual Sweepstakes trophies to the top six speakers who enter four or more individual events, regardless of genre. Debate speaker awards will be given to the top six speakers in each debate category.

If you have any questions regarding the tournaments, please feel free to contact the Tournament Director, Clara Adkins, by phone, 304 634-9605 or email at adkins442@marshall.edu or Nancy Jackson at jackso21@marshall.edu.
