announces tryouts for


The 2008 tour of the United Kingdom

Who is eligible: 

Any past or present forensic participant who is no older than 25-there

applications from students active in all forms of forensics, including
Lincoln-Douglas debate, team policy debate, parliamentary debate, and
individual events.  Students who apply should have (or plan to obtain) a
valid, current passport.


Students will be evaluated on the basis of their debating skills and
their ability to teach debate basics; their knowledge of political,
social and cultural conditions in the UK, Europe, and the world; and
their ability to represent the United States and American forensics
effectively and professionally.
