The Ted Cruz Living Memorial Novice Championship is a Princeton-only intramural tournament for Debate Panel novices. The tournament is a way for novices to show off what they’ve learned throughout the year, both to their friends on campus and to the rest of their teammates. Rounds are judged by Debate Panel varsity members. The tournament is named after Ted Cruz ’92, the 1992 Team of the Year, the 1992 Speaker of the Year, the 1992 North American Debating Championship top speaker, and Princeton’s highest-ranked debater at the World Universities Debating Championship.
