Utah Tournament of Excellence (UTE)

3rd Annual

Utah Tournament of Excellence

Saturday, April 15, 2017

@ The University of Utah

The John R. Park Debate Society is excited to announce the third annual Utah Tournament of Excellence (UTE). The UTE aims to bring together the absolute “best of the best” from across the state for a single day of focused, high-level, academic debate. Additionally, the UTE will offer students the opportunity to compete in a “tournament of excellence” hosted on the campus of Utah’s premier research university, adjudicated by experienced, knowledgeable critics. 

As indicated by the tournament information below, the tournament will be limited to the winners of each division of State competition (or the next most highly ranked competitor in state competition at each classification level). However, we hope that others from the statewide forensics community will choose to attend and watch the best that Utah debate has to offer.

We hope you are as excited about this event as we are to host it. In the meantime, we hope you have had a safe, successful, and educational 2016-2017 season.
