Apologetics is a limited-prep event where students study 100 questions provided by participating leagues. In competition, you are given 4 minutes to prepare for a 6 minute impromptu speech. The weekly download covers one particular question in depth, providing Bible verses, quotes, citations, and analysis from an Apologetics champion.
NOTE: For Season 19, we will be splitting Apologetics into two categories for NCFCA and Stoa. This will give us the ability to write source material for unique questions from each league. Watch for it this summer!

Season 19 Release ScheduleClick here for Season 18
Monument releases weekly downloads at 5:00 AM every Monday morning, Mountain Time. These are released in 3 quarters throughout the school year with an option to join a special Nationals Intensive Training Community in the 4th quarter. Each quarter contains 12 releases, custom written to specific leagues and events, totaling over 400 releases for the entire year. The school season is as follows:
- 1st Quarter (Summer): Members kick off the year for most events, providing them basic lessons on the new debate topics for specific leagues. Competitive speech releases are also available.
- 2nd Quarter (Fall): These consist of 12 additional weeks covering the league resolutions. Limited-prep and speech continue their studies with weekly releases on their events.
- 3rd Quarter (Winter): Members will be enjoying their main tournaments of the season. These releases are meant to narrow the competitive focus and keep speakers and debaters sharp for their competitions.
- 4th Quarter (Spring): Monument narrows its focus to our most popular events and leagues. Members will be invited to join Nationals Intensive Training Communities (NITCs), details to be announced by New Years 2019.
