And the following is a note from tournament director Dan Meyers regarding the Round Robin and Education Forum:

The Voices Round Robin will, again, feature an alternative time structure to aid in exploration of ways to improve LD debate and to investigate what is and is not inherent to our current format. You can see that format below. The Round Robin will be capped off by a final round that will be recorded and posted and an Education Forum that will feature a panel of competitors who are asked questions by a panel of coaches and judges as well as the audience and community at large. You can find a list of all competitors in the Voices Invitational here. All competitors are eligible to participate in the Educational Forum. To nominate a competitor for the Educational Forum fill out this form  If you have questions you would like the Educational Forum to address, you may submit those questions here.
