Battling it out using forensics

Kayla Bucci, Correspondent

Wilkes University will be holding the Harold Cox Invitational Forensics Tournament on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7-8.

This tournament will feature 10 Collegiate Forensics Association-sanctioned events, if registration allows, with two rounds of individual events followed by finals which will include the top six competitors in each category.

The debate competition will include four preliminary rounds of both Parliamentary and Lincoln-Douglas Debate and a final round, if entries warrant it, based on number of schools and distribution of entries.

Each school may enter five contestants per event, and three events per bracket. A student may enter two duos with different partners. No more than five Parliamentary Debate teams per school or five L-D debaters per school are allowed.

The forensics tournament is in conjunction with CFA and each team’s points will count toward the Welch-Strine Trophy and each person’s scores will count toward CFA’s end-of-year individual awards.
