  1. Hello!, Concordia awards ten scholarships to seniors who want to compete in speech or debate. The scholarships are valued at $10,000 over four years. These scholarships can be combined with a variety of academic scholarships and need based aid. Please let your students know about our scholarship opportunity. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is December 27th. To be eligible for Concordia scholarship programs, students must have completed the Concordia College application. The online application is FREE and available at http://www.concordiacollege.edu/admission-aid/apply/ Our forensics program has been competitive since the first debating society was formed in 1898. We have qualified teams to the National Debate Tournament 27 times, travel a rigorous national level schedule, and recently won the Emporia State debate tournament. The speech program has had six national champions in individual events, finished among the top 20 sweepstakes schools at the AFA-NIET 19 times, and last year finished 15th in NIET Team Sweepstakes. The program also maintains a strong emphasis upon achievement in the traditional classroom. Over the past 27 years our four-year graduation rate has been 100 percent. Additionally, numerous top level national competitors have graduated with high academic honors. The academic programs at Concordia allow our students to excel in multiple ways. The medical school acceptance rate for Concordia graduates is 88 percent; law school acceptance rate is 89 percent. These accomplishments are supported by the close relationships students build with professors while in college (1:13 faculty –student ratio). Students at Concordia also have access to numerous research opportunities with professors and a wide variety of internships. For more information on admission, the college, and forensics send us an email at speech&debate@cord.edu. We also invite you to follow our results on Twitter @CobberForensics or on our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/concordiacollegeforensics. Sincerely, Tyler Snelling Concordia College ’15
  2. Hello, I just wanted to remind everyone that the speech and debate scholarship is due on Friday, December 28th. That's about 16 days. However, One of the requirements for the scholarship is the student has to have their application to Concordia submitted. This shouldn't be too big of an obstacle because our application is FREE and relatively quick since it doesn't have an essay requirement. The application also requires a letter of recommendation, ACT/SAT scores, and a transcript. Students are likely safe putting off completing the scholarship application before winter winter break, but it could become much more difficult to have the requirements for the application to the college fulfilled without access to counselors over break. I would really appreciate if you could forward this information onto any students that might be interested in our program. I think there are a lot of benefits to going to Concordia outside of debate as well (global studies programs, small class sizes, strong community involvement by the college, etc.). If you have ANY questions, don't hesitate to send me an email at speech&debate@cord.edu ... Also, there will be 4 or 5 Concordia students at Blake if anyone would like to talk to us in person.

  4. Concordia College is pleased to invite you to the 69th Annual W.E. Lillo Invitational Debate Tournament. In the six decades since W.E. Lillo founded the tournament, Concordia has welcomed teams from across the upper Midwest to meet on our campus for quality debate competition. Once again, our team and coaching staff hope your experience here will be both enjoyable and educational. This year’s Lillo will be held on Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd. While we are aware that this date conflicts with some other forensics events we are constrained by both the general Concordia calendar and our schedule of collegiate tournaments when picking a date. We hope that despite such conflicts you choose to send some teams to Moorhead to compete. We would take this opportunity to remind you that, despite the decision to eliminate speech events for our November date, Concordia continues to be very committed to speech competition. November is just too early to host a speech tournament. If, however, you work with students who are interested in college speech competition, please let us know about that interest! More information about the Concordia Forensics Program can be found at our web site: http://www.cord.edu/...life/Forensics/ We would like to host three divisions of policy debate and two divisions of Public Forum and Lincoln-Douglas. Despite our desire to support all three of these debate formats, last year we did not have sufficient entries for a viable field in PF or LD. If you are interested in entering public forum or LD debaters, please send an email message to olek@cord.edu before Tuesday, November 1st so we can formally confirm our ability to offer these divisions. We hope you can join us for this fun and exciting opportunity. Sincerely, Emily Bosch, Student Tournament Manager Megan Orcholski, Assistant Director of Forensics Jason Regnier, Assistant Director of Forensics Joe Kennedy, Speech Coach, Adam Knowlton, Assistant Director of Forensics Tyler Snelling, Student Tournament Manager Fred Sternhagen, Director of Forensics POLICY DEBATE NOVICE POLICY Novice debate is open to any debater who has competed in less than 25 competition rounds of any debate format before the start of the 2012-2013 school year. Please DO NOT place students in this division who do not meet this standard merely because you feel they are your most inexperienced debaters. Elimination rounds will be held depending on division size and judge availability. We expect novice teams to abide by the Minnesota Debate Teachers Association case limits but, as always, decisions about procedural issues must be made by the person judging the round. While we support the use of novice case limits, we will honor the decision rendered by the judge. JUNIOR VARSITY POLICY Open to any debater. Elimination rounds will be held depending on division size and judge availability. If entries do not warrant a separate division, we will collapse the junior varsity and varsity divisions. VARSITY POLICY Open to any debater. Quarter-finals will be offered if entries reach 24 teams; octo-finals will be considered if there are 48 teams. We will attempt to balance your draw by using pre-set rankings in rounds 1-3. DEBATE FORMAT 8-minute constructives 5-minute rebuttals 3-minute cross-examination periods A 6-minute preparation rule will be in effect. ENTRY LIMITATIONS We guarantee three, two-person teams in each division--novice, JV, and varsity. You may suggest additional entries but we must qualify our acceptance of all such additional entries. We do face limited resources, so extra entries will be accepted only to the extent that space allows and that judging is available. We will assume that by requesting additional entries you have given permission that entries beyond the limit stated above may be scheduled against each other. We clearly regard such scheduling as undesirable and will certainly work very hard to avoid it. However, we also feel an obligation to provide diversity in competition for students. That is, we do not want someone to debate four of five rounds against one school. Extra entries will not count toward tabulation of sweepstakes awards. You do not need to designate teams for sweepstakes consideration. We will count your best three entries in each division. PUBLIC FORUM DEBATE NOVICE PF Novice debate is open to any debater who has competed in less than 25 competition rounds of any debate format before the start of the 2012-2013school year. Semi-finals or finals will be offered, size and judging permitted. OPEN PF Any debater can participate. Semi-finals or finals will be offered, as size and judging allow. DEBATE FORMAT We will follow the MDTA suggestions. Students will alternate pro and con rounds. We will use the November/December 2012 topic. ENTRY LIMITATIONS We guarantee entry of three, two-person teams. You may suggest additional entries but we must qualify our acceptance of all such additional entries. We do face limited resources, so extra entries will be accepted only to the extent that space allows and that judging is available. We will assume that by requesting additional entries you have given permission that entries beyond the limit stated above may be scheduled against each other. We clearly regard such scheduling as undesirable and will certainly work very hard to avoid it. However, we also feel an obligation to provide diversity in competition for students. That is, we do not want someone to debate four of five rounds against one school. Extra entries will not count toward tabulation of sweepstakes awards. You do not need to designate teams for sweepstakes consideration. We will count your best two entries in each division. LINCOLN-DOUGLAS DEBATE NOVICE LD Novice debate is open to any debater who has competed in less than 25 competition rounds of any debate format before the start of the 2012-2013 school year. Semi-finals or finals will be offered, size and judging permitted. OPEN LD Any debater can participate. Semi-finals or finals will be offered, size and judging permitted. DEBATE FORMAT We will use the November/December 2012 topic. ENTRY LIMITATIONS As with the policy and public forum divisions, we guarantee three entries per division, please review the entry policy detailed under public forum debate. JUDGING and ENTRY INFORMATION JUDGING RESPONSIBILITIES Number of Judges: Each school is to provide one judge for every two debate teams or fractions thereof. For example, if you have 3 teams, you need to provide 2 judges. High school students are not eligible to judge novice at the W.E. Lillo unless approved by the tournament director. Hiring Judges: We will have a limited number of judges available to hire for $65 per entry or $130 for a full commitment as long as your request is in by the entry deadline. We will do our best to fill hired judge requests made after the entry deadline—but we don’t have magical powers….. Any request for judges after the entry deadline will be assessed at the rate of $85 per single entry or $175 for a full judge commitment. Teams that arrive without a full judging commitment will be charged at $30 per round of judging provided. Head Coach Rule: In an effort to provide strong panels for the initial elimination rounds, we ask that all head coaches be available to judge the first elimination rounds (if your team is in an elimination round in any division). This rule is not met by having a hired judge available to fulfill your judging obligation. Judge Registration: We ask that all head coaches, when registering, provide call phone numbers for ALL the judges from your school. Please remember that this includes the head coach. All judges could judge any division. Thus they are required to check all schedules. All judges are expected to standby. Please wait by the ballot table until you are excused by tournament staff. ENTRY DEADLINE Entries are due Tuesday, October 30th at 4:30 p.m. Please e-mail your entries to speech&debate@cord.edu If you need to talk with someone directly about registration, please call Fred Sternhagen at 218-299-3731 or Jason Regnier at 218-299-3026. If you do not reach Fred or Jason, please call C.S.T.A. Department office manager, Mary Olek at 218-299-3143. We understand that changes happen. However, we must make commitments concerning room reservations, food purchases, and hiring judges. Thus, all fees (entry and judge) will be assessed on Tuesday, October 30th at 4:45 p.m. We ask that if you drop entries after that time you pay the fees for the dropped entries. It will help the tournament run smoothly if you verify your registration on Thursday evening and e-mail us changes. We would appreciate a call on Friday by 10 a.m. indicating that you are on your way to the tournament and providing any updates. ENTRY FEES Policy Debate; option A: $25 a team This fee will be assessed if you have submitted your registration on time (November 1st at 4:30 p.m.), verified your registration on Thursday evening, and called prior to 10 a.m. on Friday morning to let us know that you are on your way to the tournament. Policy Debate ; option B: $30 a team This fee will be assessed if you do not follow registration procedures. Public Forum Debate: $15 a team Lincoln Douglas Debate: $15 per entry LOGISTICAL INFORMATION AWARDS Trophies. Trophies will be awarded to all debaters qualifying for elimination rounds. If there are divisions where elimination rounds are not held, awards will be presented to the top six finishers. Outstanding speakers in policy debate will also be recognized. The top three sweepstakes schools will receive school trophies as well as coaches awards. Scholarships. As in previous years at Lillo, a scholarship will be awarded to a debater in his or her senior year of competition and a separate scholarship will be awarded to a debater in his or her junior year of competition. So that we may calculate the scholarship winners, we ask that when you register you identify which participants are in their junior year and which in their senior year. SWEEPSTAKES Sweepstakes points will be awarded according to this formula: Public Forum Debate participation 2 points prelim win 2 points elim qualifier 3 points win 1st elim 3 points Lincoln-Douglas Debate participation 2 points prelim win 2 points elim qualifier 3 points win 1st elim 3 points Policy Debate participation 2 points prelim win 3 points elim qalifier 4 points win 1st elim 4 points WHERE TO EAT The Concordia Campus offers students an inexpensive breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the Maize which is located in the basement of the Knutson Student Center.

  5. Hello, Concordia College- Moorhead offers seniors a scholarship for Debate and Speech in the amount of $10,000 ($2,500 per year). This scholarship is given in addition to a variety of academic and need based scholarships and awards that make Concordia an affordable option for students. We think that Concordia’s program creates an excellent opportunity for students to continue their competitive interests after high school into college. Our travel schedule offers students the ability to compete in up to 8-10 tournaments per year depending on each student’s interest and commitment. Last year Concordia debaters won the National Debate Tournament (NDT) District IV tournament and Concordia speech students placed 14th in the overall sweepstakes rankings at the National Individual Events Tournament (NIET). To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have completed the application to the college. Our application is FREE and quick – we don’t require an essay. The online application can be found at - http://www.cord.edu/Admissions/apply1.php Information about all our merit-based awards, including the Speech and Debate scholarship- http://www.cord.edu/Offices/Finaid/Types/Scholarships/concordia1.php You can apply to Concordia College at any point; however the scholarship deadline is December 28, 2012. If you’re a coach, we would really appreciate you forwarding this information to students that you think might be interested.

Thank you, Tyler Snelling ‘15 Student Ambassador Forensics Recruiting Officer
  6. Yes. Edit- A decade is probably even too long. I think within 5 years.
  7. The quality of the instruction of the camp should speak for itself with the list of staff. Multiple NDT debaters ... Lots and Lots of combined years of experience... The group of people who run this camp (not to bash on other camps) are also totally focused on improving debaters regardless of the amount of experience or number of rounds before camp. The camp also places a high priority on skill work as opposed to research production, which means debaters get a incredible amount of individual time working with some of the brightest thinkers in our activity. Finally, I'm an enjoyer of food... and this camp offers the best. Compared to other camps, where you get lame cafeteria food from a college, this camp strives to provide meals that are either home cooked or brought in from a restaurant. They also usually have a snack, and lots and lots of pop. Everyone should think about going to this camp. Even if your going to another 2-3 week camp earlier in the summer, this camp will offer invaluable skills.
  8. Just an FYI *note the requirement that the application to admission must be turned it, but that's a fast application that takes about 15min and doesn't require an essay and is free... http://www.cord.edu/dept/admissions/scholarship/forensic/application.php Debate Scholarships valued at $2,500 per year renewable for four years for a total scholarship value of $10,000
  9. Concordia College offers opportunities to travel to competitions for both speech and debate through our forensics program. Concordia offers a wonderful place for students to excel academically and competitively. Our 4 year graduation rate for members of the forensics team is 100%, which is almost unheard of at most universities. Additionally, the college has one of the best travel abroad programs in the country. We have scholarships available to students that are interested in joining the debate team (http://www.cord.edu/Offices/Finaid/Types/Scholarships/concordia1.php#forensics). The deadline is Friday, December 16th. Additionally, we have great academic scholarships that help to cover tuition costs (those can also be found at the link above). If you have any questions, post here or email me at tsnellin@cord.edu Thank you!

  12. that sounds a little bit fascist ...
  13. To create a page: (if you want me to create pages for your teams, just send me a list of the debaters that want one ) 1st- Go to the website ( http://wiki.debatecoaches.org/ ) 2nd - select join and create an account for the wiki 3rd - After that's set up, on the left hand side of the page on the home page of the wiki, there is an option for "new page" - select that. 4th - the page name should follow the format that the wiki uses which would be ex: 2010-2011 — City (NE) — Debater 1 & Debater 2 5th- Select the template as policy 6th - leave tags blank then select create To put stuff on the page: (you still need an account, that's explained above) 1st - select the team that you want to put on it 2nd - on the upper portion of the page, there is a toolbar that spans horizontally, select "edit" and that will take you to a word applet 3rd - in the open window, paste text that you wish to be posted, using headers allows you to create a table of contents Table of contents explained - high light the text to be used as a title, and then select header 1 or header 2 depending on the level in the table you want the text to appear (see my page as an example)
  14. Im ganna judge this debate as well, if it's ok with everyone. I'm a tab judge, high school debater for 3 years. I'm pretty much down with all versions of debate.
