This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The National Parliamentary Debate Association is the largest national intercollegiate debate organization in the United States, with between 200-250 schools attending at least one tournament during the course of the year. The NPDA is about encouraging extemporaneous two-on-two debate. The styles of debate vary across the country, from traditional public-centered debate to more policy-oriented debate. We believe that no matter where a debate occurs, students need to be prepared to debate about a variety of topics. We also believe that parliamentary debate fosters more knowledgeable and engaged citizens.

Join the NPDA to participate in a number of tournaments held at universities across the country. Then top teams are invited to participate in the National Championships each year.
