State Tournament

Huge thanks to Carson-Newman University for hosting the 2019 TIFA State Championships!  

In 2020, the tournament was hosted at Volunteer State Community College on February 22-23 (debate on Feb. 22, IE on Feb. 23). We would like to extend a word of thanks to Volunteer State for all of their hard work and dedication!

In 2021, the tournament was to be held at Middle Tennessee State University.  Unfortunately, plans had to change because of the spread of COVID-19. Despite that challenge, we were able to hold a virtual debate tournament via Yaatly. The hard work and flexibility of the tournament staff, coaches, competitors, and judges made our first virtual state tournament a success! We were also able to determine Individual Events champions based off of Tennessee competitors scores at Webster University’s Gorlock Gala. We want to extend another word of thanks to those that made that possible! 

We are so thankful for the resilience of our TIFA competitors, coaches, and members!
