district congress

A little known portion of the Speech and Debate team does Congress. District Congress, which qualifies one for Nationals, was held this weekend.

Unfortunately, due to the representative nature of Congress (larger schools get more votes, smaller schools are limited), Signature had trouble. Amy Reitz made the slate for Senate but pulled out because she already has two national entries in Policy Debate and Foreign Extemp. Emilie Wasserman made the slate for House 1, but did not receive the nationals spot. And I made the slate for House 2, and received 1st alternate status (if the first place winner develops leprosy, I get to go to nationals).

On a happier note, two friends of mine from Reitz DID qualify to nationals, Adam Burgdorf in Senate and Ashley Burgdorf in House 1. The Burgdorfs are amazing!
