Dear Debate Co-ordinator,

Thank you for participating in the state elementary and/or middle school debate tournament.

Elementary & Middle School Debate Coaches,

 

•         Middle School State Debate Tournament is Thursday, April 26th

•         Elementary State Debate Tournament is Friday, April 27th

•         Both are at Alta High School (11055 S 1000 E, Sandy, UT)

•         Register at https://www.speechwire.com/c-info.php?tournid=7471  Look for the tournament named Utah State Elementary and Middle School Tournament.  Create an account if you don’t have one.  You may need to request an invitation.

 

Participants must qualify to the State tournament and there are strict entry limits

 

There are two ways to qualify: through your program's district tournament OR by placing at an regular season invitational tournament. 

1.     District Tournaments: School districts (primary public school programs) choose how to run their own tournaments and ultimately select who qualifies to state. However, the overall number of qualifiers is set by the state. Traditionally, districts are allowed to qualify ~15% of their total entries (larger districts will qualify more students). District coordinators are responsible for monitoring entries. 

2.     Invitational Tournaments: Schools (primarily independent programs) may attend regular tournaments during the season. All entries that place (earned an award) at these tournaments are considered qualified to State. Traditionally, invitational tournaments do not award more than ~15% of their entries. 

The total number of entries allowed at the State tournament is limited to the rooms we have available at Alta High School. It's possible that some districts/programs don't use their allotted space, in which case we will do our best to accommodate additional waitlisted/standby entries. 

 *As districts or programs grow, their numbers can be increased.  Independent, new, or other programs not currently allotted entries will be guaranteed a couple of entries, provided they meet the qualifications outlined in #2 above.
