The Breezeway. Vendor booths will be located along major traffic areas at the tournament.

NITOC is hosting 599 students from across the country on Focus on the Family's campus in Colorado Springs. These students are academically motivated and are competitively the top 40% of their speech and debate peers. Their accompanying families are dedicated to their children's education. If this community is the kind of people you would like to connect with, a vendor booth or ad placement in NITOC's program may be right for you.

Thank You to the Following Vendors!

Vendor Gifts to be Given Away

NITOC is utilizing the Stoa Facebook Page to generate awareness of this exciting event. To encourage social media among participants, we will be giving away resources that are donated by vendors. Please contact Dave Webb (, Social Media Coordinator, to have your product added to this list:

There are three ways to connect with NITOC attendees:

1. Booths

We have a limited number of booth spaces available. These will be located along Mainstreet and the Breezeway of Focus on the Family: Booth Map. All booths are $200 and come with a 6' draped table and an accessable electrical socket (no extension cords are provided). The available booth dimensions are 8x8, 4x16, and 6x12.

To request a booth, email Kristen Paris for availability.

2. Ads

We have a limited number of ad spaces in our Tournament Program. Every competitor will receive a program, and extras will be made available throughout the week for family members, community judges and visitors. The programs will be printed 8.5x11 with color card stock covers. Students typically use the programs as "year books" for signatures, making ad placement a nice touch for vendors. Available ad sizes include:

  • $50 = business card size ad
  • $75 = 2 1/2” x 3 1/2” ad
  • $150 = 5”x7” ad

To request ad placement, email Maggie Carabelos.

3. FREE Booths and/or Ads with Judge Recruitment

We realize the vendors – especially businesses in the Colorado Springs area – can bring judges to the tournament. Judging at NITOC is a great volunteer opportunity for your employees and wonderful community service for your organization. We also want to give a financial incentive to vendors who make the extra effort to fill judges slots. One person can sign up for as many slots as they wish, each slot adding to a possible ad or vendor booth discount:

  • 10 judging slots or $50 = business card size ad
  • 15 judging slots or $75 = 2 1/2” x 3 1/2” ad
  • 20 judging slots or $150 = 5”x7” ad
  • 30 judging slots or $200 = a display table at the NITOC--available on a first come first serve basis
  • 50 judging slots or $350 = 5”x7” ad and table
