Riverview Congress Points

Note to Coaches: Student Congress at the January 28 Riverview tournament was NOT autopointed to NSDA. Coaches will need to manually record these NSDA merit points from the paper ballots. (The usual procedure is to average the two scorers’ points for each speech and round up. A missing speech score is treated as a 6; a missing PO score is treated as a 12.)
