On behalf of the IIFA board, I invite you to join us at the 2024 Illinois Intercollegiate Forensic Association State Tournament. This year, the tournament will be held on two weekends: (1) IPDA & Parli on Feb 23-24 ONLINE  (2) IE on March 1-2 LIVE AT Prairie State College.


In 2019, we added judge "conflict of interest forms" and swapped groups for POE and STE/ADS.


This year, we will again be using forensicstournament.net to run the tournament, so you should make your entry before 5 pm on Tuesday of each week.  You can make drops and substitutions until 5 PM Wednesday of each week.  After 5 PM Wednesday, please get in touch with Paul by text or cell phone (618-525-2749). If you leave a message, do not assume we have the change unless you get a confirmation. Additionally, each school will receive an entry confirmation on Thursday, Feb 22 and Thursday, Feb 29. You can always double check your entry on FTN. 


One final reminder: if you wish to utilize a non-degreed judge, please complete the Non-Degreed Judge Request. If you know folks who want to be hired to judge, they can fill out the Hired Judge Form above. These forms must be submitted by Monday of tournament week to be considered. We need hired judges, even if they can only do a round or two.  


As we do every year, the IIFA board is looking forward to the pleasure of your company at the state tournament.  With your help, we can continue to maintain the high standards of excellence for which Illinois forensics is known and respected.
