Online 2021 National Tournament Straw Poll

We are committed to building a tournament infrastructure that provides an equitable, robust competition experience for students. As we consider how to conduct main speech and Duo Interpretation at the online 2021 National Tournament, the feedback from our communities is invaluable! As district leaders, we are grateful for your ability to share your preferences and advocate for what is in the best interest of member schools and students in your district. We look forward to discussing these options further at the January 26th District Leader Town Hall!

Main speech events refer to DI, HI, POI, OO, and Info, and there are a few separate questions about Duo. These questions do not apply to Extemp, supplemental speech, or middle school events.
