Please note a change to the schedule. After further consultations with Gary Larson and Jeff Jarman, we are following the procedure used during Wake. CEDA will utilize a 3:30 schedule for rounds between powered rounds: 2:30 decision time, 2:45 end of discussion/release next pairing, 3:30 start of next round. When there is a break for a meal that creates more than 3:30 between rounds, we will try to time the release of the pairing until 45 minutes before the scheduled start time so that there is a genuine break AND consistency in the amount of prep time we permit. Thanks!

Don't forget eligibility documents for CEDA nationals are due soon, March 1.

III. Eligibility
Participating schools must be members of CEDA at the time of registration. Each debate team entered in this
tournament must consist of two students, each of whom presents one constructive speech and one rebuttal speech.
Unless otherwise provided dispensation by the CEDA Executive Council, the term "students" is defined as "officially
enrolled undergraduate students in good standing at the college or university they represent in competition."
Tournament contestants must not have competed for more than the maximum of five different, not necessarily
consecutive, academic years. Participation in other forms of post-secondary debate will factor into eligibility
calculation when conditions in subsequent subsections are met. Three-person teams and one-person teams will not
eligible to enter or compete in the tournament. Students may participate in no more than four CEDA National
In the spring of 2009, we clarified our rules with regard to enrollment documents. Our new constitutional requirement
specifies that, “Each program entering the National CEDA Tournament is required to submit official documentation
from their college or university verifying that each competitor is currently enrolled and in good standing.” There is no
required form for these documents. As long as your materials satisfy these criteria they will be accepted.
Please submit eligibility documents electronically to by March 1, 2015. Please use a pdf file
format and write Your School Name (e.g. Idaho State) - Eligibility in the subject line. You will receive a confirmation
email when your forms have been received. If you cannot submit documents electronically, please send them to:
Paul Mabrey
Communication Center MSC 1023
James Madison University
738 S Mason St
Harrisonburg, VA 22807
If you submit paper documents, please include a brief note with your email address so that we can confirm receipt.

Reminder that this Friday March 6 is cut off for hotel block and initial registration fees. After March 6th, registration costs increase for CEDA Nationals.

Every school that enters CEDA Nationals must be a member of CEDA (i.e., current with their 2014-2015 CEDA dues). You may pay your dues along with your entry fees. We ask for your cooperation in correctly entering and quickly updating your entries if changes become necessary.
Programs designed as ‘emerging’ should confirm their discounts in their entry fees when registering.
Payment can be made directly to CEDA using our paypal store linked at You may also pay by cash or cashier’s check. We will no longer be accepting personal checks as payment.
Registration fees for entries made by March 6, 2015 are as follows:
Entry fees are $120.00 per team and $50 per person.
Changes to fee structure this year represent the move away from a host fee to a per person fee based on what is actually
provided at the tournament. The $50 per person fee provides 4 breakfasts (Fri-Mon), 3 lunches (Fri-Sun) and 1 dinner (Sat).
Registration fees for entries made by March 13, 2015 are as follows:
Entry fees $145.00 per team and $50 per person.
No registration will be accepted after March 13th.
Per-person fees will be assessed on March 13th. Due to catering commitments, school will be required to pay for all individuals entered at this time.
