The Gainesville High School UIL Academics invites you and your teams to our 1st Annual Leopard Spring Classic on March 2, 2019 at Gainesville High School in Gainesville, Texas.
We will be offering all UIL Academic contests and the following Speech/Debate events: LD, Extemp, Poetry, and Prose. Registration deadline is 5 PM on Friday, February 22nd.
We will be using UIL B materials and ASW for Spelling.
We will be following the 2018-2019 UIL Academic Conflict Pattern for Academics only. Please consult the Speech & Debate schedule when cross entering with Academic events.
We will present awards for 1st-6th individual places, 1st place teams, and Sweepstakes.
LD: 1 Judge for every 4 debate entries (or portion thereof)
IEs: 1 Judge for every 5 individual event entries (or portion thereof)
Coaches for Academic events are expected to report to their respective events to assist in grading.
Note in regards to judge requirements:
Speech/Debate judges must be available for the entire day. If a judge is unable to fulfill all judging assignments this will incur a $50 fee for every missed assignment, resulting fees will be invoiced to your school. Judges may only fulfill an obligation for ONE debate/speech event (ie: 1 LD entry and 3 IE entries will require 2 Judges). Judges should bring their own stopwatches and flow paper. Ballots must be picked up no later than 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the round. It is the judge’s responsibility to be on time to ensure that rounds do not become delayed.
On 2/22 @ 5 PM you’ll forfeit the entry fee for any drops.
On 2/25 you’ll forfeit the entry plus $15 for Academics, $20 for IE’s, and $30 for LD drops.
