Every gardener would love to raise a blue rose.

People would come from afar to see it.

It is rare and different and beautiful...


The Wrightstown High School forensics team encourages you to travel afar for our Blue Rose Tournament on Saturday, February 29, 2020, where we are committed to making your experience rare and different and beautiful. 


Why The Blue Rose? We intend for the tournament to honor the memory of our teammate and friend Raelia Rose Pennenberg. Hear the whole story on February 29.


Competition will be held primarily at Wrightstown High School with some events across the street at Wrightstown Middle School. While most competitors and judges will be able to walk the distance, a shuttle will also be available.
