2020 Columbia High School Tournament
Dates: 1/11/2020
Please join us for our 18th annual speech and drama tournament.  We are extremely excited about this tournament and hope that you will make plans to join us.  Because our tournament has grown over the last few years but our campus hasn’t our space becomes limited very quickly, due to this, we can only guarantee the first 6 entries per event.  All names past the first six will be placed on a waiting list.  You will be notified if any of your official entries are dropped after the January 8th deadline.  Entries on the waiting list will be added before any new ads that are received after January 8th.  If you have any questions please feel free to email/call.
Students are only allowed to enter two events per category (including substitutions for another student and group events), and this is done at the students risk.  CX Debaters cannot cross enter in category B; any debater could be DQ'd if not in their LD round within 5 minutes of opponent and judge arriving in room.  Coaches please see that your competitors comply with the rules.
So please, come join the fun!
Entry deadline for entering is Tuesday January 7, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
Drop deadline is 12:00 noon Friday January 10, 2020.
