NSDA Online Springboard Series

NSDA Online Springboard Series
Thanks to the generosity of The Julia Burke Foundation, NSDA member students have the opportunity to compete in a series of free tournaments this year. Each event will have a middle school and a high school open division. Schools and students must be NSDA members to enter the tournament. There is no entry fee for participation.
 
The Julia Burke Foundation was established in memory of Julia Burke, a young woman of substance with a passion for debate. We are proud to partner with The Julia Burke Foundation to offer this opportunity in Julia’s memory.

Technology Resource Fund

Julia Burke Foundation Logo
Our Technology Resource Fund, presented by The Julia Burke Foundation, is intended to provide financial support for NSDA member students who lack needed technology resources (webcams, microphones, laptop, hotspots, etc.) to successfully compete in online speech and debate activities. Advisors for active NSDA member schools should fill out this form for committee consideration.
