Congress Docket for Sickles

The Student Congress docket for the January 18 FGCCFL All Events tournament at Sickles High School has been published on the tournament’s Tabroom site and below.

As always, legislators are advised to begin their research immediately rather than waiting for chamber assignments. Good luck!

Grand Finals Invitation

The registration deadline for this tournament is February 10.

Congress Manual Updated

The FGCCFL Student Congress Manual has been updated to Revision 20.01, which includes procedures for Grand Finals. It may be found on the Congress page.

Most of the changes from Revision 19.11 to 20.01 are technical corrections or clarifications. The major changes are the addition of Parliamentarians and the rules for Grand Finals. Refer to the document below for a complete list of substantive changes.

Invitations for Sickles & Durant

Tournament invitations for the remaining local tournaments of the FGCCFL seasons have been posted to Tabroom and are available here.

We will offer Program Oral Interpretation and Informative Speaking at these tournaments to help students prepare for the NSDA District Tournament in March. However, competing in POI and INF does not count toward Grand Finals eligibility. (UPDATE: POI and INF will count toward Grand Finals eligibility.)

REMEMBER: To be eligible for Grand Finals, each school must participate in at least TWO FGCCFL tournaments during the season, and each student must compete in all rounds of at least ONE FGCCFL tournament.

NSDA District Congress Legislation

Legislation for the NSDA Florida Sunshine District Congress, to be held December 14 at Pine View School, is now available on Tabroom and below.

NOTE: The Senate docket has been updated to incorporate the Flat Tax bill originally (and still) included on the NQ docket.
