The National Speech & Debate Association connects, supports, and inspires a diverse community committed to empowering students through speech and debate.
We envision a world in which every school provides speech and debate programs to foster each student’s communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creative skills.
CORE VALUES EQUITY
EQUITY STATEMENT The National Speech & Debate Association is committed to modeling and fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion for all speech and debate communities. We are continuously transforming our organization to reflect and operationalize the values of equity, integrity, respect, leadership, and service. We will take responsibility. We will heed, learn, and evolve. We will work conscientiously to model and foster an inclusive and equitable speech and debate experience for all.
HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION POLICY The National Speech & Debate Association is committed to providing its participants, judges, coaches, and staff the opportunity to pursue excellence in their endeavors. This opportunity can exist only when each member of our community is assured an atmosphere of mutual respect. The NSDA prohibits all forms of harassment and discrimination. Accordingly, all forms of harassment and discrimination, whether written or oral, based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status, citizenship, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by any applicable federal, state, or local law are prohibited, whether committed by participants, judges, coaches, or observers. Individuals who are found to have violated this policy will be subject to the full range of sanctions, up to and including removal from the tournament premises. 4

TOURNAMENT SUPPORT We constantly strive to make speech and debate a more inclusive and welcoming activity. In an effort to clarify and improve the rules adjudication process for the membership, the NSDA has further defined the roles of Ombudspeople, Equity Officers, Rules Adjudication Panelists, and National Tournament Directors. Please visit the tournament office in your competition building to connect with us!
WE’RE HERE TO HELP!
• An Ombudsperson is a person who, via the tournament office, attempts to provide important information to attendees and helps to resolve issues that may arise throughout the course of the tournament.
Steve Schappaugh, IA
• Equity Officers provide a first point of contact for attendees with inquiries related to harassment and discrimination at the tournament.
Jan Friedman-Pizzo, OR
• Rules Adjudication Panelists are responsible for gathering all relevant data associated with certain formal protests assigned by the National Tournament Director, interviewing the protesting and protested parties, and rendering a final decision to uphold or decline the protest and determine the appropriate penalties, if applicable. Decisions are final and may not be appealed. • The National Tournament Director and Assistant National Tournament Director serve as first referee on all rules and procedure related items. They both rule and serve as advisers to the rules adjudication panelists and ombudspeople and are the head administrators of the National Tournament. All rule and procedural decisions are final and may not be appealed.

JUDGE BOND REMINDER If all judges from a school complete all judging assignments, including semifinal and final round judging assignments, the $200 judge bond will be returned by July 31, 2022—either in the form of a mailed check OR as a credit applied to the school account, per your selection made through the online registration process on Tabroom.com. You can log in to your Tabroom.com account to check your selection (mailed check or school credit). Failure to report for a judging assignment or pooling assignment will forfeit your judge bond of $200 for the first round missed, and a $100 per judge per round penalty will be assessed thereafter. A school will not be permitted to renew membership or compete the following year until all outstanding fees are paid. Schools that want to appeal loss of judge bond or fees are invited to complete the online appeal form at www.speechanddebate.org/fee-appeal-form. Review of appeals will begin on July 11, 2022. The deadline to appeal is September 30, 2022. For other judge bond questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you for these scrimmages! Our team is learning from the feedback and lowstress competition.” — Leilani McHugh (CA)
Springboard offers a lowstakes, high-impact way for coaches to recruit, train, and expose new students and judges to competitions.
We have a limited budget—70% comes from fundraisers the students do during the year. So these free tournaments are a blessing.” — Kirk Kelloway (IA)
Thanks to the generosity of The Julia Burke Foundation, we offered 22 free competition opportunities to students this year—reaching 2,554 unique students and 304 schools. We’re excited to announce the return of these events in 2022-2023!
