Sweepstakes Procedures

Proposed amendment:

10. Novice sweepstakes: CEDA will award novice sweepstakes trophies to the top three programs earning the most points in the novice division but not earning enough points to be included in the Top 10 Overall Sweepstakes Awards. Schools will receive points for all teams entered in the novice division. Otherwise, points for novice sweepstakes will be awarded following the guidelines for general sweepstakes. In the event that the junior varsity and novice divisions are collapsed, points will be awarded to teams that debate in novice breakout elimination rounds.

Rationale: The purpose of this award is to incentive novice debate participation and recognize the work done by programs that invest in novice debate.
