Upcoming Events Information

Home School Speech and Debate Tournament

I am reaching out to my fellow Republicans in Western North Carolina.  In Wake County, we often seem to talk about how we need to encourage young conservatives.  I’d like to introduce you to an excellent chance for you and your members to do just that.

Next week, February 20-23, the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association will host one of its largest national open competitions at the Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, North Carolina.  We expect more than 250 students to compete in moot court, Lincoln-Douglas debate, Team Policy Debate and 11 different speech events.

We need judges from the surrounding area and this is where you can help.  Please go to our judges website and sign up for a three-hour spot.  Your commitment includes training, watching your round and completing your evaluation.  Bonus:  Plenty of warm Southern hospitality.

Here’s how to sign up:

  1. Go to www.ncfcajudges.com
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page.  Click on the map.  When the page refreshes, click on Region IX (light blue, where NC is)
  3. Click on the dot next to Black Mountain, NC National Open
  4. Click the Sign Up Button
  5. Fill in your personal information and choose your time to judge.

We’ll send you a confirmation e-mail and reminders as we get closer.

Come out and support these home schooled students, many of whom are the conservatives of the future.
