Information You Need for Tournaments
Note: There are no documents that require you to ask permission to see. If you cannot get into a form/document, you need to sign onto a non-North Allegheny Google account. Please do not request permission to use the google doc because that will be sent to an account that isn't monitored.
Parent-Judging info will be sent to parents complete with phone numbers and emails for you to make trades. Please make changes by contacting other parents and making trades. Please email Kolitha after you make your change so that he has the correct info.
Here is a great video for kids about Speechwire (and more)!!
Note: If you have any questions, please look at the FAQ page linked here.
The calendar for 2021-2022 (Don't print the calendar... Treat it as a liquid document that will get updated often. You should always look at it the night before we have a tournament to see if anything has changed (Please do not email Kolitha about times unless the info is not on the calendar)!!!
Practice Schedule - Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays unless your event leader tells you otherwise
Current LD and PF topics New Parlie handbook Debate Evidence Rules
New judges look here for information - ballots and handbook. Note - Regular tournaments aren't required to use any particular ballot. What you see here is just a sampling and may not actually be used at the tournament you attend - but it will be close!!!
REMINDER TO NEW JUDGES - As you were told at the opening meeting, THESE CAN BE LONG DAYS but we need you to be there all day. Make sure to stay close to your computers. We hope to be back to in-person competitions at the end of the season (but realistically... that probably won't happen...). Do not repeatedly go to the tab room (lounge) to ask when the next rounds starts or "Can I quit now?" They will announce when you can leave, and bothering the tab room staff is the number one reason that we start to run behind. Again - HAVE THINGS TO DO CLOSE TO YOU so that you don't miss anything (because we can get fined)!!!
National tournament information - this is from the officers and is not endorsed by the school. Email the officers / varsity competitors directly with questions on these events. The rules for the officers may change based on their experiences at the national tournaments.
