ISU Forensics Union alumni are invited to serve as an individual events or Lincoln-Douglas debate judge during the National Forensics Association national tournament. The competition will be held on the University’s campus April 15-18. More than 100 college and university teams are expected to participate.

There are 40 students on the speech team, which won the tournament in 1995, 1999, and 2000. ISU placed third in the national competition in 2010, continuing a tradition of excellence that began when the Forensics Union was formed in 1857.

School of Communication Assistant Professor and Forensics Director Kevin Meyer is planning a reunion event on April 16 for alumni as part of the tournament week. Alumni are also invited to judge the tournament and attend reunion events that will be held throughout the weekend.
