Speech and Debate · Speech and Debate – March 21st Updates

There have been a few more updates regarding our schedule for the rest of the school year. As always, we are grateful for the speech and debate organizations that continue to put the health and safety of all involved first.

The International Public Policy Forum has cancelled all further competition. Congratulations to Chris Chen, Huamin Gao, Louis Li, Zeru Marut, and Josh Wolk on making it to the Elite Eight — they will split the overall prize with the other seven teams!


The National Catholic Forensic League has cancelled the Grand National Tournament scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend in Chicago, Illinois.


The Eastern Missouri District of the National Speech and Debate Association has decided to use a bid system to determine qualifiers in the case that the national tournament occurs as scheduled. The bid process will be shared with team members when approved by the national office – hopefully no later than April 1st.
