Kenston will offer Big Questions Debate and all OSDA high school and middle school events on its campus in Bainbridge Township, Ohio (which is next to Solon and Chagrin Falls).  We will offer unlimited entries in HS & MS Big Questions Debate and Congressional Debate.  If you have more than five entries in any other event, please enter them on the wait list, and they will be admitted depending on room.  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 Wednesday, December 18 at 5pm.  You are responsible for paying the entry fee for any drops after this deadline. Please make checks payable to Kenston Board of Education.  $4 per student for each event in which they are entered.
Congress results will be based on judge's preference.  High School Congress will use the Dec. 21 OSDA docket.  Middle School Congress will use the following five pieces of legislation from the OSDA Middle School docket:  2, 3, 6, 7, 9.  LD and HS  PF will use the Nov/Dec NSDA topics.  MS PF will use the Ohio middle school November/December topic.  We are currently planning to hold four rounds of debate (except for three rounds in policy).   For high school Big Questions debate, please enter two-person teams if at all possible.  
Trophies will be awarded to the top three in each event, both for HS and MS.  Ribbons will be awarded to fourth-sixth place.
Judge requirements: 1 judge for every 1-5 speech, 1-8 congress, and 1-2 for each type of debate.  If you don't enter enough judges, your entries will be dropped.  Please enter email addresses for your judges because we will be using electronic ballots.
We will let you know in advance which events are being held at which 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. 
A variety of lunch options will be offered to students.  Please bring small bills.  Please do not bring your own food because this tournament is our major fundraiser.
