Classic Debate Camp is excited to welcome you and your students to participate in a fun-filled and educationally productive day of speech and debate competition! Highlights of our 2021 tournament:
  • We are offering all speech events this year as well as Congressional Debate, Big Questions Debate, Policy Debate, Lincoln-Douglas, and Public Forum. 
  • Students will be able to earn OSDA BIDS in their events as long as there is the required number of competitors.
  • In LD, PF, Policy, and BQD, there will be JUDGE DISCLOSURES AND ORAL CRITIQUES after every round. The tournament will also post results after every round.
  • At the conclusion of the third session of Congressional Debate and the fourth round of speech, judges in those events will also be encouraged to give feedback to competitors. 
  • In IX and USX, our plan is to have cross-examination in every round. 
  • We will host competition using Zoom as our platform for synchronous competition in all our events - no NSDA campus.
  • We will provide a virtual Equity Office in case any DEIJ issues or concerns arise. We also request that all judges complete anti-bias training before the tournament (see below). 
The CDC 2021 tournament will kick-off on Saturday morning, December 11, with the registration between 7:45-8:30 a.m. Eastern. Round 1 is scheduled to begin promptly at 9:00 a.m.. Please refer to Speechwire for information about the approximate start times for the remaining rounds. LD, PF, BQD, and Speech will all have 4 rounds of competition. Congressional Debate will have 3 sessions. And Policy Debate will have 3 rounds. Awards are scheduled for 4:00 p.m. Eastern.
 
Teams will be initially limited to 6 entries in each event, but more entries may be accepted later if space permits. Please place additional entries on the Speechwire waitlist. 
 
Tournament debate topics will be the NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2021 NSDA designated topics.
 
Teams are expected to provide judges for the tournament: 1 judge for every 2 entries in LD/PF/Policy/BQD debate. 1 judge for every 5 Speech entries or fraction thereof. 1 judge for every 10 Congressional Debaters. We may have access to a limited number of judges for hire at a rate of $60 per day. Please communicate with tournament directors asap to request hired judges.
