History of This Resolution

This sourcebook was provided in print edition for the 2012-2013 Stoa resolution listed above. The cover was taken from the award ceremony from the year before at the league's tournament. This tournament was run by Chris Jeub, the Blue Book's coauthor, and the trophies pictured were rocks harvested from Colorado mountains. The tournament was held in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at Focus on the Family. The resolution debated for this Blue Book was debated at the 2013 National Invitational Tournament of Champions at John Brown University. Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Monument Publishing provided a summer print copy with 13 cases as well as a Midseason Supplement, all available in this download. Monument Publishing ran a Nationals Intensive Training Camp (NITC) at a campground 15 minutes from Siloam Springs. Of these students, we came home with several great success stories including 1st Place LD Speaker, bottom seed taking out the top two in the first two rounds, and numerous title awards.

Contributors to this edition include Jon Bateman, Lincoln Anderson, Lauren Blankenship, Matthew Erickson, Elizabeth Ertle, Luis Garcia, Noah Gray, Chase Harrington, Travis Herche, Ashlyn Olson, Michael Tcheau, and Phillip Allevato.
