State Invitational Tournament
Because of the number of students that participate in the Logos Forensic Association and the limited amount of space available for the LFA invitational tournament, students must meet qualification requirements to participate.
Qualification requirements are event specific (e.g., team policy debate, impromptu speech,...), and a student may qualify for more than one event. To see a copy of the qualification requirements for this tournament year, click on the button below.
Competitors will be invited to the championship tournament based on these qualifications. Click on the button below to view this year's qualification requirements
“In my experience with debate, I have seen timid students turn bold and uninspired students study with fervor. ... I decided to form the Berean debate team because of the benefits that I saw debate give to any student who pursues it.”
– Kyle, captain of the BCHS debate team
April 26th-27th, 2019

This year's tournament will take place at Trinity Southern Baptist Church in Fresno, California. This will be a full two-day tournament with: 3 speech rounds; and six preliminary, one semifinal and one final team policy debate rounds. This is an invitational tournament where qualifiers will receive an invitation to register for this tournament. The invitation will contain all of the information that one will need to complete your registration.
As is the tradition for our end-of-year state invitational tournament, along with trophies and other awards, the LFA will be awarding scholarships to our top performers. In addition, we will be hosting a BBQ dinner and mixer Friday night for participating students and coaches.

Tournaments are a vital component of forensics. These competitive environments are where students put into practice all of the information they have acquired in class. In fact, students who compete regularly throughout the season will often know significantly more on the topic (resolution) than students who only participate in class or club meetings.
