Dear Forensics Community,


Building upon the success of last year’s online tournament, National Online Forensics is excited to announce the 2021 National Online Forensics Middle School Championship.   This will be a synchronous video conference national championship tournament held June 1-6, 2021 for middle school students.



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 Friday May 28th, 2021 at 12pm Pacific time on ForensicsTournament.net

  • Reasonable entry fees payable by credit card on the website.

  • 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).


We hope you and your team can join us June 1-6, 2021 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.


We would like schools to be aware of the following:

1.  The tournament will be held entirely online.  Please see the Best Practices Guide on the tournament registration page for additional information regarding the preparation for Internet tournaments.  This guide will have suggestions and policies regarding specific events. 

2.  Throughout the entire tournament, we will have a live help room for anyone having trouble.  The URL will be 8x8.vc/NOFhelp.  If anyone from your team has problems, this virtual room will be the first place to go.

3.  All middle school competitors will be required to have a parental guardian onscreen for the duration of the round or provide a waiver.  Please download the waiver from the tournament registration page.

4.  This invitation is subject to change.  We will send out notices to coaches regarding any changes.

The tournament will be held on June 1-6, 2021!  Please feel free to pass this invitation along to anyone who might be interested in attending.
