Hello, my name is Jasmin, I'm a senior in high school and I'd like some advice. This is my second year of competition in the NCFCA; since this is my final year before graduation and there aren't many tournaments in my area, I would love to perform my speeches in some Stoa tournaments as well. So I have 3 questions.
1. To compete in Stoa, do you only have to pay a membership fee for the year as a prerequisite to sign up for a tournament?
2. I'm not part of a Stoa club; is that required or preferable to compete?
3. In Stoa you can compete at any preliminary tournament in the country, right? In NCFCA you can only compete in your 'region'.
Thank you so much! I appreciate your help.
