Attached you will find the xls to cast your squad’s vote to determine the topic papers for this year’s NPTE. Thank you to those whom submitted topic papers this year. I’m very excited to have so many submissions to give our students a real choice in their topics for competition.
Voting procedures: Please rank the papers 1-14, with 1 being your most preferred topic paper, 14 being your least preferred in the spreadsheet provided. No papers may receive the same ranking. Please not change the order of the topic papers in this spreadsheet. Each team/squad/student org may vote one, so be sure to take the time to go over your team’s choices collectively before submitting.
Please have the person in charge of your program, like your DoF, team president, sponsor, etc. submit the final spreadsheet to email@example.com by 5pm MST January 27th. That gives us two weeks!
Once voting concludes, I will tabulate and release the results. At that time, our topic committee will work on the resolutions for the selected papers. More details will follow once we’re at that step in the process.
This year, I am very happy to announce the following individuals were willing to donate their time to serve on the topic committee. Be sure to thank them when you have the chance!
Rob Layne - University of Utah
Alice Lin - Speech & Debate at Berkeley
Matt Reisener - University of Texas at Tyler
Kathryn Starkey - CSU-Pueblo
Duncan Stewart - Lewis & Clark College
Please let me know if you have any questions!
