Dear Coaches,

We want to welcome you to the Palestine High School UIL invitational meet held on Jan. 24-25, 2020.    We are using the UIL Set A contest.  Please consider this when you enter, and enter students who have not yet taken the Set A test.  The contests will not follow the conflict pattern.  You must supply a grader or a judge for every event you enter.  Prose & Poetry and extemp will have 2 rounds guaranteed.  You must provide 1 judge for every 6 IE entries. Uncovered judges will be $125, but we prefer a judge. There will be a $50 charge for an uncovered Computer Apps judge.

CX and LD is on Friday night. Schools must provide 1 judge for every 2 CX, and every 4 LD entries. Uncovered debate judges will be $125, but we prefer a judge.  If your judge does not show up, the school will be charged the $125.  The entry fee for LD is $20 and $30 for CX. 

Registration deadline is 5 pm Wednesday, Jan. 22.  Drops need to be made by 5 pm Thursday, Jan. 23, or the fee will be charged for all entries. All individual entries are $10 each.   Debate judges must be entered by Wednesday, Jan. 22 or the missing judge fee will be assessed.

Journalism and Ready Writing may use PHS school computers or handwrite their entries.  Spelling will be computerized so competitors need to bring headphones.

Payment must be made on or before the day of the meet for students to compete.  If not, an approved PO must be shown.  Any fees due must be paid within 30 days of the meet or a late fee of $100 will be charged. Checks should be made to Palestine High School Academic UIL.
