The tournament is open to public, private, individual and home-school students currently in grades 6-8 (or age equivalents) for any student residing in the North Texas region.
This special tournament offers public school students the opportunity to practice works for other competitions, and enables private, individual and home-school students an opportunity to compete. There will be both individual and school awards offered!
Our judging pool will consist of seasoned UIL speech event judges, NTPA professional directors, educators, and alumni, and professional local actors. If you would like to participate as a judge, please let us know at email@example.com.
We will have a hospitality room for judges and coaches as well as concessions available for students to purchase.
NTPA will be offering trophies to the top three placed winners and medals to the top 8 contestants. The top award winner in each competition will receive a free scholarship in an NTPA production (a $400 value!) (some limitations may apply – see Prize Details Terms & Conditions.)
Schools with at least five contestants can compete for sweepstakes trophies and bragging rights as the Top Theatre & Speech program in North Texas!
