MDTA Jamboree

2022 — Wayzata, MN/US

Welcome to the 2022 MDTA Jamboree


On behalf of the Minnesota Debate Teachers Association, we cordially invite you and your team to the 2022 MDTA Jamboree. This year the Jamboree will be held  in person on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at Wayzata High School. We are so excited to be able to start our invitational season off all together again! 

As has been the tradition at this tournament, one of our main goals is to provide novices an opportunity to learn about debate by watching a moderated demonstration round and analyzing the debate with a post round question and answer session. We are excited to be able to offer that opportunity again this year. In addition, we will be offering an abbreviated session of Congressional debate and then having time for a tutorial for novice debaters. You should register your novice and JV Congressional debaters in the House.

In addition to providing learning opportunities for our communities newest debaters, we will also be offering judge training for all categories of debate. As the needs of our newest debaters continue to change, we are asking that all available judges join our judge training opportunities on Saturday morning. 

For your convenience, specific information related to the Jamboree is provided on the separate pages on the right of our main tournament page. Please refer to those pages for more specific information. If you have further questions, please contact Des Niemann at or Rachel Baumann at for tournament assistance. 


We look forward to seeing you at the Jamboree!
