National Online Forensics sees a tremendous value in an online national championship that can afford more competitors and programs the opportunity to compete and showcase their skills on a national level.


Key Points:

  • Registration is due by the Sunday before the tournament at 8pm Pacific time on ForensicsTournament.net

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

  • competitors will need to compete with the authorization and support of their school’s coaching staffs.  No independent competitor 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.
