The 2009 tour of Japan



Approximate tour dates: Early June to early July 2009


Who is eligible: 

Any past or present forensic participant who is under 25 and is a full time undergraduate in good standing (juniors and seniors are preferred), or who has received an undergraduate degree but is no older than 25.  We encourage 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 Japan, Asia, and the world; and their ability to represent the United States and American forensics effectively and professionally.
