Overall Tournament Rules

  • Students will be allowed to enter a maximum four events in total regardless of the Pattern, but may not exceed 4 (unless they are entered in LD and/or DUO, and can compete in 5 total events).

  • Lincoln Douglas Debate will be live for all rounds Thursday and Friday. 

  • If entries are below the amount needed, some rounds will go straight to finals asynchronously. The tournament director is allowed to make adjustments based on the needs of the tournament. 

  • Students advancing to the semi-finals will receive a bronze medal in the form of a medal. Students advancing to the final rounds will receive silver and gold medals.

  • Students must perform live in order to compete in final rounds. Failure to compete live will result in bumps for “next-in” students

  • Students must have attempted to join the zoom room live, and contacted the tournament troubleshooting room if there are any technical issues. Clear troubleshooting steps must be shown in order for there to be a consideration of video usage in place of a live performance. Previously scheduled external events or pre-planned technical issues known early will not allow for exception. Technical difficulties must arise in the moment. 

  • Only students competing and students judging may be in the round, outside spectators will not be allowed to observe. 

  • Any student who goes over the 30 second grace period will not be allowed to finish first in that particular round.
