Honors Credit Criteria for Tournament Debate
Students who earn an "A" overall for the course and fully qualify for the State Championships by receiving at least two "half-qualifications" in the same event (LD, PF, Extemp, etc.) at two or more tournaments prior to the end of the second quarter may qualify for the Honors Designation in Tournament Debate by virtue of their substantial achievement.
(In exceptional cases, students who earn an "A" overall for the course and in addition seriously prepare for and actively compete in five or more tournaments involving one or more of the analytical events of Extemporaneous Speaking, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate, and/or Model Congress prior to the end of the second quarter may qualify to earn the Honors Designation in Tournament Debate, provided that such students consistently earn tournament high scores and positive tournament ballots demonstrating active and serious competition at ALL of these tournaments, in cases in which such students may come close to fully qualifying for the State Championships yet not fully qualify. )
