Welcome to The Davy Crockett Statesman's

Student Congress Debate Tournament!

We are so excited to offer this tournament again in conjunction with THEA's Rally Day in the House of Representatives Chamber in the Tennessee State Capitol!

CCT's Student Congress 2020 will be similar to last year's congress. Because last year our lawmakers moved their offices out of the Legislative Plaza and War Memorial Building into the renovated Cordell Hull Building, THEA's Rally Day program will again be in the House of Representatives Chamber. So both the Rally in the morning and one of the Final Rounds of Student Congress that same afternoon will take place in the House Chamber.

The rounds of Junior Varsity Student Congress and Senior Varsity's preliminary rounds will be on Monday, March 30th at Christ Community Church in Franklin, TN, and the SV final rounds on Tuesday, March 31st in the afternoon following the THEA rally in the two historic rooms at our Capitol; the House of Representatives Chamber and the Senate Chamber, both in our Capitol.

Below is the pertinent information for registration. Please see the tabs on the left for important details about the tournament and how to do Student Congress.
