Your team is invited to join us at Liberty High School on Tuesday, January 28th, 2020 for our Speech & Debate tournament at Liberty High School.
Events:  Each high school may enter six contestants in all IE categories and Student Congress. You may register six Varsity LD Debaters and six Public Forum Teams. Debates will use the January NSDA topics.  If you wish to enter more contestants than permitted please let me know and if space permits you will be notified.
We will be offering middle school competition. This is a great opportunity for middle school students to experience speech and debate on a smaller scale. This will depend on entries and more details will come once we see how many schools would be bringing middle school students.     
Quick Updates:
Drop all events off to the High School by 3:30pm.  Debate and Speech competitors will be in opening ceremony at the High School. Extempers will head to prep room at 4pm to start extemp prep.

The middle school is within walking distance of the high school. One small road for bus access runs between the two school buildings. Debate will be held at the Middle School.  All students should get dropped off at the High School for opening ceremony then debate can walk to the Middle School.  It is within walking distance.  Lunch will be served at the High School.  Light snacks will be at the middle school.
