Founders Trophy

Some information comes from Linda Fryar's article, "A Brief History of Individual Events Nationals," National Forensic Journal 2.2 (Fall 1984): 73-84. Thanks also to Dr. Richard Paine of North Central College for the other names. We'd still like to get total points of each of the winning schools if available.

The Founder's Trophy is a cumulative sweepstakes trophy. Upon winning the trophy, the school's points are reset to zero.
