Dear NIFA Colleagues,


We welcome you to attend the 2023 Nebraska Intercollegiate Forensics Association State Tournament on Saturday February 11th, 2023, hosted by Concordia University, NE. We look forward to providing teams with quality competition in a relaxed atmosphere.


Individual event preliminary rounds and all out-rounds will take place on Saturday, February 11th. Semi-finals will be held for any event with 40 entries or more. Schools are allowed a maximum of six entries per individual event and limited to 66 total events.


The tournament schedule allows students to compete in up to six individual events. Students may enter no more than three events per conflict pattern and no more than two Duos. We do make an exception for final-year competitors at their coach’s discretion to as many as four events in one flight. These special cases may not exceed a team limit of six entries per individual event.


The top two speakers in Persuasive Speaking (Oratory) will qualify for the Interstate Oratorical Association National Contest. Therefore, Persuasive Speaking (Oratory) will follow the specialized rules of Interstate Oratory, as described below.
