2021 National Online Forensics College Championship

Dear Forensics Community,

Building upon the success of our 2020 National Online Collegiate Forensics Festival, National Online Forensics is excited to announce the 2021 National Online Forensics College Championship.   This will be a synchronous video conference national championship tournament held Fri May 7 - Sun May 9, 2021. 

This year’s tournament will serve as a true National Championship tournament. National Online Forensics sees a tremendous value in an online national championship that can afford more students and programs the opportunity to compete and showcase their skills on a national level.

Key Points:

  • Registration is due by Tuesday May 4 6pm Pacific time on ForensicsTournament.net

  • Reasonable entry fees payable by Credit Card on the website.

  • Students will need to compete with the authorization and support of their school’s coaching staffs.  No independent student entries will be accepted. 

  • Each school is required to provide one judge for every 5 IE entries per pattern/2 debate teams. At the discretion of the Tournament Director, uncovered entries may be allowed (penalty fees apply).

  • The tournament will use synchronous video conferencing on the 8x8 platform. Please see the Best Practices section of this invite for tips on how to effectively use the platform.

  • There will be a single championship division for all events.

  • All 11 individual events (with some modifications) and NPDA, NFA-LD, and IPDA debate will be offered. 

  • The Opening Ceremony, most final rounds, and the Awards ceremony will be live-streamed on YouTube.

We hope you and your team can join us May 7-9  for a celebration of the hard work our forensics students have been doing all season.  If you have any questions please feel free to email us at info@nationalonlineforensics.org
