Stoa tournaments are open to participants from across the country.
The National Stoa Organization hosts only one tournament per year, the National Invitational Tournament of Champions (NITOC). During the 2015-2016 season 96 “Stoa tournaments” were run by local tournament administrators. These tournaments attracted attendees both locally and from around the country. These tournaments utilize Stoa event rules, ballots, tournament aids, orientation slides, and other resources.
Tournaments meeting the Stoa Minimum Tournament Standards may be posted to the Stoa Calendar and to Speechranks. Participation may help students earn an invitation to NITOC. Tournaments will need to be completed by April 30 with result uploaded to Speechranks immediately thereafter in order to be considered for NITOC.
