NCFCA believes every young Christian ought to be equipped to think critically and graciously articulate their beliefs and thoughts. With that purpose, One Day NCFCA events strive to offer an abbreviated, low-cost competitive opportunity for students of all ages and experience levels to receive constructive feedback as they hone their critical thinking and communication skills. Beginning in September 2016, One Day NCFCA events may be hosted by speech and debate clubs, homeschool organizations, or other individuals interested in coordinating non-qualifying practice events at facilities of their choice.
