Past OHSSL Legislation
Any OHSSL student is encouraged to submit appropriate legislation to his/her coach. All legislation shall follow guidelines set by the National Speech and Debate Association.
Once a coach has received the legislation and has verified it is in the proper format, s/he shall submit it to the District Designee for Congress by the deadline. It is suggested that all District pieces be submitted to the OHSSL Designee at the same time.
Each District should submit no more than 6 pieces of legislation per submission date. Each District has the autonomy to decide this process.
Once the coach has submitted the legislation to the District Designee, the District Designee shall forward all appropriate legislation to the OHSSL Congress Designee -- Jodi West. Legislation will then be organized and posted on the OHSSL web site by the 15th of the month prior to the month the legislation is to be debated. Legislation will not be edited for content.
The docket will be divided into weekly tournament sections. Each tournament host will then verify the pieces of legislation they wish to use for their tournament and announce it in their invitation and to OHSSL for posting.
For the OHSSL State Tournament, legislation will be posted online by February 1 in sections: preliminary, quarters, semis, and finals.
