                                    THIS SAME RATIO APPLIES TO PUBLIC FORUM TEAMS AS WELL.


In I.E., a judge who just graduated from high school last year may NOT

                                    judge the event in which he/she competed.  A parent or other close family

                                    relative should NOT judge the event in which the current competitor

Food:                           Snacks will be served in both buildings. Lunch will be served in the high

                                    school cafeteria at reasonable prices after rounds are completed.  The

                                    Youngstown District has issued a rule stating that no one (including

                                    judges) is allowed to leave the premises for food either to bring back to

                                    the tournament or to eat at a restaurant.


Extemp:    The Prep Room will be the High School Library. Outlets will be    available on a first come first serve basis. If an issue arises my tab room person has the right to not allow anyone  use outlets. WIFI IS NOT AVALAIBLE DURING THE TOURNAMENT!!!!!




                                    Topics from the past 90 days of the standard news magazines will be




Awards:                      The top 6 in each category will receive an award.  There will be a Team

                                    Sweepstakes Trophy as well, based upon your the scores of your 10 best

                                    contestants overall. In addition, we will be awarding the John Revezzo Memorial Trophy for best in tournament performance.


                                    In I.E., a 1 = 3 pts.;  a 2 = 2 pts.;  a 3 = 1 pt.

                                    In L/D and P/F, a win = 2.25 pts.  (0 pts. for a loss)

                                    In Congress, a 6 = 3pts. a 5=2pts., a 4=1pt.


Tab:  The tab room at the high school will be located in room 119. That is where you will register. Tab at the Intermediate will be in the computer lab. (Enter   through the main doors and make a right down first hall. It will be first room on left.)

  Tab room is for district committee or by invite only.


Because of the size of the tournament and our space limitations, we must use one other building in addition to the high school.  Thus, WE ARE ASKING YOU TO DROP OFF YOUR L/D & P/F DEBATERS AND JUDGES AS WELL AS CONGRESS AND CONGRESS JUDGES BEFORE YOU ARRIVE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.  REGISTRATION FOR L/D, P/F, & CONGRESS WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL AT 120 EAST MARGARET STREET. (ABOUT 2 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL.) We will provide a shuttle bus to transport all competitors and judges from the intermediate school back to the high school for lunch and awards after the rounds are completed.




Hope to see you on the 9th!!
