Happy New Year! Our first MAST of 2023 will be on Tuesday, January 24th at Stoneman Douglas High School!
 
Please follow the instructions on this page to register your entries. Remember, each school may only initially enter FIVE students in all events except Congress, in which you can enter TEN.
 
Registration for NEW ENTRIES will close on Friday, January 20th at 5 pm. At that time as many students will be released from the waitlist as judge numbers allow. Changes (drops or name changes) can be made until 12 pm on January 24th. Any changes after that, please text Justin Weaver: 954.790.8160 the school name, student who is dropping, and her/his event.
 
You MUST arrive for the tournament between 1:30 pm and 2:00 pm. If you arrive after 2:00 pm you will not be allowed to enter until after 3 pm.
 
Everyone will stay in the cafeteria until Stoneman Douglas has dismissed and round 1 is ready to begin (hopefully around 3:15 pm). The judge lounge will be in the media center.
 
For PF, the JANUARY topic will be used - Resolved: The United States Federal Government should increase its diplomatic efforts to peacefully resolve internal armed conflicts in West Asia.
 
For LD, the JANUARY/FEBRUARY topic will be used - Resolved: Justice requires open borders for human migration. (Please note that we are NO LONGER using the Novice "civil disobedience" topic).

For Policy Debate, the 2022-23 topic will be used - Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its security cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in one or more of the following areas: artificial intelligence, biotechnology, cybersecurity. In addition, at the MASTs all teams MUST use the Novice Policy Packet. The Novice Policy Packet can be accessed at the NDCA website: http://www.debatecoaches.org/

Extemp topic areas will be "South America" and "the US Congress", and Impromptu topic areas will be "Neighborhoods" and "Opinions".

Congress legislation for the spring semester was emailed to all coaches before Winter Break. It is also accessible electronically here under the "Files for Download" section. The spring legislation packet has designations for which bills will be debated in which months, with 4 bills per month. As always, chambers might not debate all 4 bills if time does not allow.

Also, middle school Congress competitors will have the opportunity to PO in the 2nd semester!
 
More information may be sent out as the tournament approaches. Please let your mentor know if you have any questions.
