All debate events will have four rounds with a possibility of a final if time permits. All speech events will have three rounds and a final except in events that exceed 40 students, in which there will also be a semi-final round. Congress will have an AM and a PM session. Top non-advancing novice awards will be given out in all speech events (except Declamation) and Congress. Awards will be given to the top six students/team in each event. Sweepstakes awards will be given out to the top three schools overall. Each school may enter up to six contestants per category.
