Welcome to the home page for the 2020 Mendoza Debates at Lee College tournament hosted by Lee College on Sep 19-20, 2020 for College students.

Status: Tournament Completed

Welcome to the virtual 2020 Mendoza Debates at Lee College.  We'll be featuring six preliminary rounds of IPDA Debate in all four divisions.

When making your entries, please remember that:

  • All entries must be covered.
  • There is a $5.00 observer fee per non-competitor and non-judge (and one complimentary slot for a single coach).  These individuals can be entered via the Pattern B event listed as "Observer".
  • Please make certain that you include working email addresses for all competitors, judges, and coaches to all us to push ballots in both prelim and elim rounds.  Please have your ALL competitors, coaches, and judges VERIFY their email addresses
  • Remember that all programs are committed to judge for the full tournament, including all elimination rounds.
  • We would also ask that ALL competitors be listed as judges in your program's entry portal.  This will aid all tournaments greatly during elimination rounds for accessing non-advancing competitors.  To clarify, you will not be entering them as judges for prelims of any tournament, but having them already in your judging list will aid tournaments in keeping things running smoothly and ensure that all judges used in all phases of a tournament will have valid email address for ballots.  Please encourage all students and staff to personally verify their email addresses prior to the tournament.

Thanks for helping kick off the 2020/2021 IPDA season with Lee College!
