 Judging Requirements:

You must bring a judge for each speech and debate section in which entries are submitted. They cannot be the same person-due to it being a one day event with all rounds starting in the morning. (Example: 4 LD Debate +2 Informative +1 Poetry +2 Persuasive +3 Prose = 5 Judges)  Failure to provide a judge will result in a $100 judging fee for each speech or debate event missing one.

Failure to supply a grader will result in disqualification from academic events. Any written/essay submissions won't be graded unless a $100 grader fee is prepaid for us to prearrange to provide an extra grader for your school (ex: Social Studies, Journalism, Ready Writing, and Current Events)--Not fair to other schools grading all of those entries.

Speech and Debate Drops:  

All drops on Thursday, 3/1 will forfeit the entry fee.  All speech and debate drops (after 12pm on Friday,  March 2nd) will result in a drop fee of $50.00 plus the loss of your entry fee.
