I am excited to invite you to Polk State College’s first ever Forensics tournament. I hope that our central Florida location as well as the offering of NPDA and all 11 AFA events will encourage you to send your freshman and sophomore competitors.  Please join us in Lakeland, Florida for this invitational event to take place on Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th on the Lakeland campus.  Again, this is an open tournament but I encourage you to send your newest, greenest, novice competitors in hopes that all entrants can leave inspired. 
Registration will take place on Speechwire and the deadline is September 30th, 2019. Onsite registration and lunch (gluten free and vegan options will be available) will take place in the student center area of the LAC building.  Awards will take place in the LTB building (1-6). Non advancing novice will be acknowledged. Both large and small teams will be awarded in team sweeps, 1st-3rd.
 
Each event has an entry fee of $10.  Events with two competitors (debate and duo) are $15.  My aim is to make this tournament financially accessible to all size teams.  And, while I understand that adds and drops occur, there is a deadline with an established fee schedule.  This applies to judge drops as well.  All entrants should expect to provide at least one judge for any of the events offered (the more provided, the more helpful though : )  
 
The Polk State College Office of Communications will be onsite taking photographs and, in some cases, video.  The default is an opt in release but please do have each individual sign and complete the release (unless indicated otherwise/no permsission granted).  This release is located under tournament documents.
 
Additional information on possible tie breaks and on sweeps calculations will be provided at registration, along with any other outstanding, pertinent information.  If any competitor is in need of ADA accommodations, please advise.  If any teams with limited funds are in need of room sharing options, please reach out and let's work together.
