The 5280 Tournament


November 10th-11th @ George Washington H.S.
Friday 4pm-10pm
Saturday 7am-8pm

Why is this tournament important?

The 5280 Tournament is one of the primary ways the Kent Denver Speech & Debate team  earns funding for the year. We co-host this tournament with George Washington High School because they have the number of rooms needed for a large metro-area tournament. As a host of the tournament, we are in charge of the meet scheduling, providing and scheduling judges, and provisioning and staffing the snack bar. These all take a tremendous amount of preparation before and staffing during the tournament. The profits from the snack bar provide funds that are used to support for the team throughout the year.

What do we need from you?

We need a strong volunteer turnout in four areas:

  1. Preparing for the snack bar
  2. Staffing the snack bar (Friday and Saturday shifts)
  3. Judging events (Friday and Saturday shifts)
  4. Set up before tournament on Friday/tear down after tournament on Saturday evening

Sign ups will be announced closer to the tournament date. Feel free to contact Parent Committee Co-Chairs Lee-Ann and Colleen  if you want to start helping out early.
