Quitman High School UIL Invitational Meet
February 10, 2018
Dear UIL Coordinators/Coaches/Sponsors:
Quitman High School invites you to participate in its annual UIL Academic Invitational meet on Saturday, February 10, 2018. Please register at www.joyoftournaments.com. All UIL events excluding debate will be offered, and we will be using UIL Set B materials. Each school will be limited to four (4) entries per event with the following exceptions:
· Science, Calculator, Number Sense, and Math—limited to six (6) entries per event
· Ready Writing, Journalism and Speaking events—limited to three (3) entries per event. Ready Writing, and Journalism events will be held in our computer lab on our computers. Students may choose to hand write Ready Writing and Journalism entries.
Also, due to a lack of space, Computer Applications, Ready Writing and Journalism events will be limited to the first 35 entries. We will not hold a general assembly; rather, contestants should report to their contests at the scheduled time. This procedure will give us an earlier start for the day’s events.
NOTES ON EVENTS:
Math/Science: Calculators may be used following all UIL rules.
Computer Science: Only multiple choice tests will be given. No calculators are allowed.
Computer Applications: Entries will be limited to the first 35 contestants registered. Each school MUST provide a grader; if a school does not provide a grader, that school’s contestant(s) will be disqualified.
Speech Events: Coaches will judge in all preliminary and final rounds of speaking events. Judges will keep time in their rooms. Schools with drops in prose and poetry should check in at the theatre before 8:00 A.M. Drops for extemporaneous speaking must be made before 10:30 A.M.
Judging Requirements: Schools must provide qualified judges/coaches to judge prose/poetry/extemp. Schools must provide one qualified judge for Ready Writing and one qualified judge for each of the four (4) journalism contests. If a school does not provide a qualified grader, that school’s contestant(s) will be disqualified.
Entry deadlines and fees: Entries must be submitted by 4:00 P.M. on Monday, February 5. All drops must be made by 4:00 P.M. on Wednesday, Feb 7. After that time, entry fees are forfeited. You may mail your check or bring it with you on the day of the meet.

Awards will be presented to the top six (6) winners in each event, to the top team in team competitions, and to overall Speech and Journalism teams. Team winners will receive medals. No group plaques will be awarded except for overall First Place. All schools will compete in one division.
Throughout the day, we will gather the day’s materials for each school. On the day of the meet, coordinators can take with them only speaking critique sheets and results sheets for all contests. All tests and extemporaneous speaking topics will be mailed later.
A concession stand will be available for students. Complementary food will be provided for all judges and coaches in the Homemaking room. No food or drink may be taken to the classrooms.
We hope to see you on Saturday, Feb 10, 2018. If you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 903-763-5000.
