Princeton Classic

Tabroom Invite and Registration

Dear Forensics Coach,

On behalf of the Princeton Debate Panel, it is our pleasure to invite you and your forensics team to the 18th Annual Princeton Classic, to be held from Friday, December 5th, 2014 to Sunday, December 7, 2014. The tournament will consist of competition in Varsity and Novice Lincoln Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate, Congressional Debate, and six Speech events. We offer 5 prelim rounds in IE and 6 in LD and Public Forum. Semi-finalists in Varsity Lincoln-Douglas, Octofinalists in Public Forum debate, and Elimination Round Participants in IE and Extemporaneous Speaking will earn a bid to their respective Tournament of Champions.

Last year our tournament made another strong leap forward in tournament administration and policies, drawing over 1000 participants from more than 100 schools, and we hope to continue and build upon that success. Joining us this year as Tab Director is Jim Menick of Hendrick Hudson (NY), who will run LD tab with Sheryl Kaczmarek of Lexington (MA). Dario Camara of Columbus (FL) and Carol Cecil of Braddock (FL) will direct Public Forum tab, Brother John McGrory of Chaminade (NY) will oversee Congress tab, and Joe Vaughan of Scarsdale (NY) and Lydia Esslinger of Syosset (NY) will run Speech tab.

If you need any additional information, please email us at We hope your school year and forensics season are off to a great start, and look forward to seeing you all in Princeton this December!
