TOC At-Large Applicants
The deadline to apply for an at-large bid to the TOC is quickly approaching. Debaters need to have their applications and payments returned by March 13th. The University of Kentucky provides the following instructions to applicants:
"For all events, 1 TOC bid is required to apply for an at-large bid. Any request for an exception to this policy must be made in writing to the Tournament Director well in advance of the at-large due date. Please be aware that any letters accompanying At-Large applications may be shared with the Advisory Committee of the respective event, since it is the Advisory Committee members who evaluate and rank the at-large applicants.
Please list all tournaments attended by your at-large entry on the entry sheet. Failure to include all tournaments may result in your application being disqualified.
Coaches are encouraged to submit a ONE PAGE additional letter of support with the at-large application to detail any extenuating circumstances that you may want to share with the committee for their evaluation of your application."
The application documents can be viewed and downloaded here:
We would also like to create a list of 1 bid debaters applying for an at-large bid. Please let us know in the comments if you know someone who has applied or is planning on applying before the deadline.
