IX Qualifiers

Ft Lauderdale

Here are the qualifiers to the 2018 National Speech and Debate Association National Tournament in International Extemporaneous Speaking.  This qualifier board is meant to collect information on the competitors who will be doing extemp in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in June.

If you know the qualifiers from your NSDA District, please e-mail the following information to logan.scisco@topper.wku.edu:

  • The name of the NSDA District and the state that is located in
  • The names of those who will be ATTENDING nationals in IX and USX. Please do not send us the names of those who technically qualified, but opted to go in another event. We only want the names of those who will be going in the categories to avoid confusion.
  • The schools those competitors attend.
  • IF your district has an automatic qualifier from last year’s NSDA Tournament (a competitor that reached finals or semi-finals in IX and USX) and that person will be going back to NSDA in that event, please let us know. If you are an automatic qualifier and want to give this information to us yourself, fantastic!
