El Campo High School UIL Speech, Debate,Drama, and Academic Tournament!
Hello UIL Academic Coaches,
You are cordially invited to the El Campo High School 41st Annual UIL Academics and Speech & Drama Tournament on January 13th & 14th at El Campo High School. We will be offering a wide variety of events in speech, debate, acting, and oral interpretation. All prelims of debate and Bible Reading (prelims, semis and finals) will take place on Friday, January 13. All other events and elimination rounds of debate will take place on Saturday, January 14th. New events this year are Computer Science, POI (Program Oral Interp- NSDA rules), and Informative Speaking (NSDA rules)
We will also host an academic contest offering all UIL Academics. We use UIL Set A material and tests from other vendors. (Please understand, we do not follow the conflict pattern. We run the Academic and Speech/ Debate contests as separate tournaments on the same campus.) Please have your student's pay close attention to entry times. Speech and debate events wil not wait for Academic contests past the alloted, scheduled time. Cross entering is done at your own risk.
All school entries must be submitted by Wednesday, January 4th at 4 PM. All schools entered by that date may make changes until Wednesday, January 11th at 4pm.
Please report any drops as soon as possible. Drops made after Wednesday, January 11th will result in loss of entry fee. Debate drops made after Thursday, January 12th will result in a double drop fee. Because space is sometimes limited, we will allow adds, but on a first come first serve basis.
Please take note of the earlier start times on Friday. We have student early dismisal that day and can begin the tournament earlier than prior yeears.
This year we will offer some meal options to our concession stand. You may elect to purchase meal tickets in advance for your students if you wish. The lunch meal will be a hamburger, chips and a drink for $6.00.
