PADAWAN was a power-marked regular-difficulty tournament written for use in the fall of 2014. The tossups were produced by a group of young writers working under the guidance of a team of mentors consisting of Matt Bollinger, Auroni Gupta, Seth Teitler, and John Lawrence, with the exception of the geography and current events tossups, which were written by Will Alston. The bonuses were written by the mentors, with additional contributions from Will Alston, Mike Cheyne, Gautam Kandlikar, Matt Jackson, and Cody Voight.

The PADAWANS, listed in alphabetical order, who completed their assignments include Cameron Amini, Sameen Belal, Alston Boyd, Jason Cheng, Nick Collins, Alex Dzurick, Joey Goldman, Caleb Kendrick, Eddie Kim, Emma Laslett, Kay Li, Ewan MacAulay, Rohan Nag, Rohith Nagari, Jacob O'Rourke, Graham Reid, Ryan Rosenberg, Joe Su, Brittany Trang, and Richard Yu. Each PADAWAN contributed 20 tossups of topics of their choice. Unused tossups submitted by PADAWANS will appear as part of future side tournaments.
