The Flower Mound High School UIL Academic Coaches and Team invite you to our UIL A Release Invitational on Saturday, January 26, 2019. This meet is for academic spring meet events only. However, a companion speech / debate tournament is being offered on campus starting on January 25 for teams wanting to practice Cross-Examination, Extemporaneous Speaking, and Prose / Poetry category A and B. Entry for speech / debate contests can be accessed here.
Judges and Graders: To help the contest run smoothly, schools are asked to provide a grader for any event which a student is entered. We also ask that coaches be willing to help proctor some of our bigger contests. In gratitude for all your help, a hospitality room will be provided for all coaches, drivers and graders.
Awards: The three schools with the most team points, by UIL rules, will receive Sweepstakes Trophies. Individual and event team awards will be announced after the official results have been verified and recorded. All tests will be will be available for pickup by a coach after awards have been announced and presented. Note: We will also rank NS, Calc, Mathand Science by grade. Ribbons will be awarded to the 1st -3rd place finishers in each grade.
Scholarships: One-tenth of the entry fees collected in each event will be put into a scholarship pool to be awarded at the end of the meet. Every student that places in the top three overall in an event—either individually or team—will be placed into a scholarship drawing. We will award $100 scholarships until the fund is depleted. We are excited to offer this program to our competing students! (Please note that FMHS students will not be eligible for scholarship awards)
