US Universities Debating Championship 2011 Registration

We look forward to hosting you at the University of Vermont 1-2-3 April 2011.

Registration opens on 1 January 2011. At that time you may indicate the number of teams (up to 6) you would bring as well as the number of judges. On March 1 2011 we will open up spaces to schools who have asked for more than 6 teams.

Non-USA teams are welcome to attend. They can break and receive awards, but only a USA team can win the US National Championship.

Judging requirements = Number of teams - 2. If entering 2 teams, must supply 1 judge. Teams=judges: 1=0, 2=1, 3=1, 4=2, 5=3, 6=4.

Fees are $120 per team and $60 per adjudicator. Sorry for the higher fees, but the grants and awards we received last time have now dried up. Schools desperately seeking fee reduction or waiver can ask for assistance. Teams from outside the USA can receive fee reductions.

All checks should be payable to Lawrence Debate Union/University of Vermont. Cash refunds cannot be given for overpayment, but we will send you a check.

Housing is not included, but limited crash is available and our hotel is very inexpensive.

On 1 January 2011 you may email this information to for your preliminary entry. You will receive a confirmation.
