Events & Format:

 

Individual Events:

-No student may enter more than three (3) events per flight.

-We will offer competition in all eleven AFA events and appropriate elimination rounds. 

-Finalists will advance based on lowest cumulative rank, then highest reciprocal, then highest cumulative rating points.

-To support the educational intent of forensics we will err towards breaking at least 6 competitors to finals when feasible to provide the maximum opportunities for performance, ballots, and critique.

-Ties are broken by first preliminary rank, then reciprocal, and final speaking rate will determine those who advance. If a tie is unbreakable all tied competitors advance to the final round. 

-First place will be awarded to the competitor with the lowest cumulative rank.  Ties in finals will be broken first on predominance of 1’s, second judge’s preference, and finally rating points.  Ties in team points and individual sweepstakes will be broken on numbers of finals followed by number of 1, 2, 3’s.  Individual sweepstakes is open to any competitor who has four or more events.

- All rules for the 11 AFA events should follow the “AFA-NIET Description of Events” found at http://www.mnsu.edu/cmst/niet/eventdescriptions-new09-10.htm

-Finals will be condensed if possible
