SpeakOut NC Regional Speech and Debate Tournament

We are thrilled to announce the Tarheel Qualifier, a regional speech and debate tournament on March 14-16, 2013, at Colonial Baptist Church.  We invite you to come and support homeschooling families from several states and receive a blessing in return. Speech events range from stirring biographical narratives and persuasive speeches, to interpretive events (bringing a piece of literature or an original story to life), to limited preparation events, which include Christian apologetics, extemporaneous (current events), and impromptu.  In addition, there will be two types of debates featured: Lincoln-Douglas style, which is typically a clash of values, and Team Policy, where two teams will debate the merits of a proposed policy to address a current issue.
In order to host a successful tournament, we need your help! Would you please consider signing up as a community judge for our tournament? Invite a friend or neighbor to join you. You won’t be disappointed!  Hundreds of community judges are needed to volunteer for 3-hour shifts on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.  Upon arrival, judges will receive a brief training .  Once assigned to a specific event room, judges will observe the round and then complete ballots, while enjoying yummy food and beverages.  This is a great opportunity to inspire and challenge your own children, so please bring them along to observe.
Judge Registration: To register as a judge, please click on the link below and choose the day and time slot you prefer.  Speech and debate events alternate throughout the day. You are welcome to sign up for as many slots as you like, keeping in mind that registering early will give you more flexibility. We also suggest signing up for a slot early in the tournament, as you may enjoy it so much you want to sign up for more!

In addition to our need for community judges, we are looking for families who would be willing to offer host housing to a family attending our tournament from out of town.  The commitment is very limited, as the family (might be just one student and one parent) will leave your house early in the mornings (around 7:00) and will not return until after 9:00 at night.  The basic requirements are to provide a place to sleep and a place to shower, most likely from Wed. evening through Sat. morning. Anything beyond this is up to the host. There is no expectation to provide meals, although it is nice to allow the family a little space in the refrigerator/freezer and allow them to perhaps make some coffee and use the microwave in the mornings or something along those lines. Please contact Donna Eaton at donna@elecbrick.com if you are able to serve as a host family or if you have additional questions.Roblox Robux Hack 2017
