1. We will offer all Academic Events. We will be using UIL Set B materials and ASW Spelling Test, please bring headphones for spelling. Division I (1A - 3A) and Division II (4A - 6A) for academic and writing events.
2. All speaking events will follow standard UIL rules and policies. Documentation for Prose and Poetry will not be checked. However, if a selection is called into question by a coach and seems valid to tournament officials, proper documentation will be required. Failure to produce adequate documentation will mean that the student may read and receive a written critique, but will be ranked last in the round.
3. LD Debate will use UIL Spring Topic.
We ask that all sponsors, with the exception of those with the journalism events and ready writing help grade. Every school involved in Computer Applications MUST provide a grader or risk disqualification.
