It is the desire of Stoa to promote professionalism and modesty in behavior and dress for NITOC. We have developed the following Dress Code for the National Invitational Tournament of Champions.

NITOC Dress Code


During competition, students must dress in professional business attire.


Suits or slacks and a sports coat, with a shirt and tie, and dress shoes.


Skirt or pant suits; slacks, skirts or dresses with jackets, and professional dress shoes. Hemlines are to be at least to the knee. Nylons are not required.

Awards Ceremony

Students must attend the awards ceremony in full competition attire.


If the competitor’s attire at any time during the tournament is deemed a violation of the dress code, the competitor will be asked to come into compliance with the dress code. A student will not be allowed to participate in competition or awards without compliance.
