Help us reach our fundraising goal for

Entry Fees for NIETOC and NSDA tournaments

2019 nietoc qualifiers
We are raising funds to cover our entry fees for two different national tournaments. For NIETOC, we have 18 students competing in 23 events in May. Entry fees alone for that tournament are over $2500. We will also need to pay judging fees as well as for lodging for two nights. In addition, two of those students were also fortunate enough to qualify for the prestigious NSDA tournament in Dallas, Texas in June so we are also raising money to help offset those expenses.
