2019 Watertown Speech Fiesta
Dates: 1/18/2019 - 1/19/2019


Dear Coaches, Competitors and Friends:


On behalf of the coaching staff at Watertown High School, I would like to cordially invite you to the 69th annual Watertown Speech Fiesta. This year’s Fiesta will be held on Friday and Saturday, January 18-19, 2019, in Watertown, South Dakota. The Fiesta began as a small regional tournament, but has grown to attract schools from several states. We are proud to offer ten divisions of individual events, as well as seven divisions of debate.


The 2019 Fiesta promises to deliver some of the finest competition in the area. Debate divisions will all break to semi-finals (some may be hidden in round 5 dependent upon event size).  Please note: Mavericks will NOT be allowed.


Registration for the 2019 Watertown Speech Fiesta can be found online. Visit the Joy of Tournaments website (www.joyoftournaments.com/sd/watertown). If you have any questions concerning the tournament, please contact me by email (scott.walker@k12.sd.us).  You may also call me at 605.882.6324 (debate room), 605.886.4230 (home), or 605.868.4200 (cell).  Please direct any comments about judges or entires to Danielle (danielle.harms@k12.sd.us).  


Registrations are due by 4:00 PM on Tuesday, January 15. The registration window will remain open for you to make changes until Thursday, January 17 at 8:30 AM. Fees will be calculated at that time with the exception of hired judges, which will be calculated on Tuesday. After the window closes on Thursday, please contact Danielle by email (danielle.harms@k12.sd.us) or phone (605.520.0507) to make changes. When you leave for the tournament on Friday morning, please contact the tournament with any additional changes to ensure that the general meeting and round one begin on time.


We are excited to host you at this year’s Fiesta. We hope you will join us!
