Novice is being defined as having no debate experience prior to this school year.
o Varsity is being defined as having one or more years of debate experience. 
 
Judges: One judge for every two LD competitors, two PF teams, or two policy teams, and one judge for every six Congressional entries.  We would like to single flight.  Varsity members may judge novice debate.
 
Hiring local judges – We would like to single flight; therefore, I do have a few former students who would be willing to serve as a judge for those of you who might be struggling finding someone.  I pay judges $30 for the day; you would need to cover this.  If you are interested, please email me.  It is first come, first serve.  If finding judges is problematic, please just email me and I will work with you.
 
Awards: Ribbons will be awarded to competitors who place 1st-8th in each event and division. Sweepstakes awards to the top three schools. 
 
Food: We will provide food for the judges in the judge’s lounge. Students may purchase their meals in the cafeteria. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE BUILDING.  COACHES – PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO BUY FROM US IN THE CAFETERIA.  THIS IS HOW WE ARE ABLE TO HOST A TOURNAMENT AND PURCHASE AWARDS. If you and your team order in for yourselves or bring your lunches, the tournament will be a financial burden and we will be unable to host in the future. 
 
Please contact me if you have any questions:  jascott@kokomo.k12.in.us  or via phone at 765-461-2649.  We are looking forward to a good debate!
