Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

We are passing along this message from Christian Communicators of


Individuals aged 18 and over to help in judging the National
Christian Forensics and Communications Assn. Speech and Debate

Cedarville University, Cedarville, Ohio. (Dayton/Springfield area)

June 4-7, 2002. Come for a day, a 5-hour block of time, or multiple

Training provided, no previous experience necessary.

Over 400 home school children ages 12-18 will compete in this
tournament. Previous tournaments have been held in California, Texas,
Virginia, and Tennessee. This is the first time for Ohio! The NCFCA
league was started by Michael Farris' daughter, Christy Shipe and
Home School Legal Defense Assn. about seven years ago. The
tournament can only succeed with your help! Please contact Karen
Coyle at, or (614) 889-9252. to volunteer. [Perhaps
you could stay with a relative or CHEO homeschool friend in the
Columbus area.]

Your older children are welcome to volunteer as timers and to be
inspired by the best debates and speeches from all across the U.S. at
this tournament! Competitions include Team Policy Debate, Lincoln-
Douglas Debate, Extemporaneous, Impromptu, Original Oratory,
Persuasive Speaking, Expository, Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous
Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, and others.

In addition, Christian Communicators of Ohio, the Ohio NCFCA
Affiliate and Tournament host sponsor, will have a booth at the CHEO
Convention. You will be able to sign up for hands-on summer workshops
to learn more about speech and debate and receive information about
how to start your own speech and debate club. Curriculum materials
will be available for purchase to help you get started. If you have a
desire to see your children become more articulate speakers, able to
"be ready to give an answer for the reason for the Hope that they
have, in season and out of season," this is for you!
