Registration Deadline: NOON on Wednesday, February 28th.
Entry fees will be:
$10 per Academic entry and $15 per LD Debate or Speech entry.
1st – 6th places will be given.
You must bring a judge for each speech and debate section in which entries are submitted. They cannot be the same person-due to it being a one day event with all rounds starting in the morning. (Example: 4 LD Debate +2 Informative +1 Poetry +2 Persuasive +3 Prose = 5 Judges) Failure to provide a judge will result in a $100 judging fee for each speech or debate event missing one.
Failure to supply a grader will result in disqualification from academic events. Any written/essay submissions won't be graded unless a $100 grader fee is prepaid for us to prearrange to provide an extra grader for your school (ex: Social Studies, Journalism, Ready Writing, and Current Events)--Not fair to other schools grading all of those entries.
Speech and Debate Drops:
All drops on Thursday, 3/1 will forfeit the entry fee. All speech and debate drops (after 12pm on Friday, March 2nd) will result in a drop fee of $50.00 plus the loss of your entry fee.
LD Debate Rounds may be flighted based on registration numbers.
