History of This Resolution
This sourcebook was provided in print edition for the 2011-2012 Stoa resolution listed above. The cover was taken in front of the predicted venue for the 2012 National Invitational Tournament of Champions, Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It became the largest homeschool national tournament to that date. Publisher of Red 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. Travis Herche and Jon Bateman (2011 National Champion) ran the camp. One of their students, Matthew Erickson, went on to win the Lincoln-Douglas National Title at NITOC the week following.
Contributors to this edition include Kaitlin Nelson (Editor), Chase Harrington, Travis Herche, Matthew Mittelberg, Shane Baumgardner, Jon Bateman, Ashlyn Olson, Jesse Byrnes, Elizabeth Ertle, Benjamin Griffith, Cynthia Jeub, and Patrick Ortiz.
