All Saints Episcopal School
2022 — TYLER, TX/US
UPDATED Tuesday, Oct. 11
Note: This schedule is tentative and rounds will be collapsed and/or times advanced whenever we are able, especially after prelims.
Cross-entering limits: Debate (CX, LD, PF & Congress) may enter speech events. In speech, students may enter up to three events [updated 10/3] (plus debate), but may enter only one extemp event. A judge can cover both a speech and a debate obligation, but should expect some marathon judging.
Division requirements: Only students in their first year of high school competition may enter a novice division. In a team event, if one partner has already competed, the team must compete in the varsity division. However, anyone is eligible to compete in the varsity division at their coach's discretion, which would make them eligible to earn TFA State qualification points.
