Please note that these deadlines are absolute last-minute deadlines; often divisions will fill up and housing will definitely fill up long in advance of these deadlines.

Entry fees will be halved for Urban Debate League programs outside of the Greater Boston area. Fee reductions DO NOT apply to judge fees or the school fee. Email us at biglex@tabroom.com to request half fees.
