Speech and Congress will be at Kenston High School.  All other debate at Kenson Middle School.
Your buses will be responsible for dropping your kids off at each school and transporting them to Kenston High School at the end of the day for awards, although the schools are within walking distance. 
The tournament will hold four rounds of Big Questions Debate and all OSDA high school and middle school events as well as an extra middle school event: Extemporaneous Speaking, except for three rounds of policy debate.  Speech double entries are permitted except for extemp.    Registration will be held from 7:45-8:15am.  Extemp prep and policy debate will begin at 8:30am.  Please remember that your middle school entries need to be entered via your middle school team SpeechWire account.  Cut-off for drops is Thursday, December 14 at 9pm.  You are responsible for paying the entry fee for any drops after this deadline. Please make checks payable to Kenston Board of Education.  
Congress results will be based on judge's preference.  High School Congress will use the Dec. 16 OSDA docket.  Middle School Congress will use the following six pieces of legislation from the OSDA Middle School docket:  5, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12.  
LD and HS  PF will use the Nov/Dec NSDA topics.  MS PF will use the Ohio middle school November/December topic. 
Judge requirements: 1 judge for every 1-5 speech, 1-5 congress, and 1-2 for each type of debate.  A limited number of non-policy debate judges are available for hire.  Please enter email addresses for your judges and remind them to bring an electronic device because we will be using electronic ballots.
A variety of lunch options will be offered to students at Kenston High School and Kenston Middle School.  Please bring small bills.  Please do not bring your own food because this tournament is our major fundraiser.
The Kenston tournament has been renamed in memory of Fred Snook, who passed away last year.  Fred coached at Crestwood and Kenston for 45 years and is a member of the Hall of Fame of the Ohio Speech and Debate Association.  Fred inspired, encouraged and motivated students, coaches and judges in the Cleveland District and throughout Ohio.  He is sorely missed.  Additionally, the Kenston Foundation is awarding an annual $1,000 scholarship to a Kenston Senior.  Contributions can be made by sending checks to the Kenston Foundation, 8584 E. Washington St., Chagrin Falls, OH 44023 and note "Fred Snook Scholarship" in the memo line.
