We are fundraising for the NIETOC (National Individual Event Tournament of Champions) and the NSDA: NFL National Tournament (National Speech and Debate Association: National Forensic League).
The NIETOC Tournament will be held in Lincoln, NE from May 8-10, 2015. The NIETOC Tournament is a fairly new tournament. In order to qualify for this tournament, students must have 3 placings throughout the year that add up to 10 or less. For example: If a student places 5th (overall) at one tournament, 3rd at another, and 2nd at yet another tournament.
We have 4 seniors, 1 junior, 1 sophomore, and 1 freshman qualified.
The NSDA-NFL National Tournament will be held in Dallas, TX from June 14-18, 2015. The National Speech and Debate Association is an honor society for speech and debate students. Among the many things they offer our students, is a national speech tournament. In order to qualify for this tournament, students must place high at the NSDA Northern Lights District tournament (actual placing required depends on the number of contestants in each event). This is a long and grueling tournament that covers the top third of the state of Minnesota (both Class A and AA combined).
We have 1 senior qualified.
