Ennis High School
UIL Academic Christmas Tournament
December 14, 2019
Dear UIL Academic Coordinator and Speech Coach:
Ennis High School is excited about hosting our Christmas Tournament Saturday, December 14, 2019.
This year we will be using third party materials: ASW for spelling, MRC for Lit Crit, Social Studies, CI&E, Accounting and Journalism, TMSCA tests for Mathematics, Calculator, Number Sense and Science, A+ Computer Science written test and Hexco for Computer Applications and Ready Writing.
We will also be hosting UIL sanctioned speech events. There will only be three rounds of CX. CX cannot cross enter in any speech event. There will be two rounds guaranteed for all IE's with a blind final.
In order for the meet to run smoothly we ask that each school entering debate provide one judge for every two CX teams, or portion thereof, every two LD Debaters, or portion thereof, and one for every six competitors or portion thereof in the individual events. If you have one or two CX teams or LD debaters, you must provide one judge. If you have three or four CX teams or LD debaters, you must provide two judges. If you have one CX team and one LD debater, you must provide one CX judge and one LD judge; it cannot be the same person. Please email if you have questions about this policy.
Our desire is to host a tournament that is not only competitive but fun and festive as well! Wear Christmas sweaters! Tis' the season to be jolly! Santa medals will be awarded to the top six students in each event. Math and Science events will be split into two sections: 9/10 and 11/12. A first place plaque will be awarded for each team event. Holiday refreshments will be provided for sponsors, graders, judges and bus/sleigh drivers. A snack bar will be available to students.
If there are any questions, call us at 972-872-3664. We are looking forward to having you on our campus. We anticipate a great competition for our Christmas Tournament!
