History of This Resolution
Stoa 2011-2012 Policy Resolution
This sourcebook was provided in print edition for the 2011-2012 Stoa resolution listed above. The cover was taken from the award ceremony from the year before at Focus on the Family, the venue for a local tournament in Colorado Springs. The tournament developed a relationship with Focus on the Family that brought the 2012 National Tournament of Champions at the end of the year, the largest homeschool national tournament to that date. Co-author of Blue Book Chris Jeub ran this national tournament.
Monument Publishing ran a Nationals Intensive Training Camp (NITC) in Manitou Springs, Colorado, the weekend before the 2012 NITOC. Vance Trefethen was Skyped in from France to coach students and work on their cases. Several policy awards came out of the preparation given at the preparatory camp.
