NITOC Competition Events
NITOC 2019 will offer 11 Individual Events (Speech Events) grouped into four main disciplines:
Biblical Thematic Interpretation
Limited Preparation Speeches
Wild Card Event Speeches
The Italicized Events are Speechranks events from other leagues that are compatible with Stoa’s NITOC events. Students receiving two Green Check Marks on Speechranks in those events will be invited to participate in the associated NITOC event based on the National Model Invitations system. Other leagues also have events that are already grouped with NITOC events on Speechranks. State Model Invitations apply to Stoa Events only.
NITOC 2019 will offer three debate events:
Resolved:Criminal procedure should value truth-seeking over individual privacy.
Resolved:The United States federal government should substantially reform its foreign aid.
NOTE: For Duo Interpretation, Team Policy, and Parliamentary Debate only teams may be invited to the Stoa National Invitational Tournament of Champions. In other words, a student may not receive an invitation with one partner and then compete at the Stoa National Invitational Tournament of Champions with another. If a student receives an invitation with two different partners in the same event, he/she must choose with which partner to compete.
