There will be additional awards for Southern California league invitational tournament participants this year. There will be a set of individual speaker awards for students in their first year of debating. They are meant to recognize the accomplishment of students with no prior debate or public speaking experience.
Students with middle school debate (any format) or other competitive speech experience (extemporaneous speaking, interpretive events, etc.) are not eligible for these awards.
When registering teams for a tournament, please place an “N” prior to the name of any eligible student. Awards for new debaters attending the Sequoyah School tournament on September 29 will be recognized and receive awards during the Claremont McKenna College event on October 13.
