The Road Less Traveled: Going Local.
Greenstreet, Robert
This paper presents an explanation, justification, and invitation to establish and participate in local circuits for intercollegiate forensic tournaments. It begins by discussing the personal experience of one college forensic group in various national tournament circuits. It then presents reasons the founding of a local circuit was needed, citing the time and monetary needs of the nontraditional students who comprise the majority of the program. The paper concludes by discussing the educational value of participation in forensics programs and by stating the many benefits incurred through the establishment of a local circuit, the Great Plains Forensic Conference, which plans tournaments among several forensics programs included in this regional association.
