Dear Speech and Debate Coaches and Sponsors,

On behalf of the Saint Mary's Hall Speech and Debate Program, Faculty, and Staff, we would like to cordially invite you to the Ninth Annual Speech and Debate Tournament at Saint Mary's Hall, October 26-27, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.

Founded in 1879, Saint Mary's Hall is a college preparatory school rich in tradition and committed to academic excellence. Designed by famous southwest architect O'Neill Ford in 1968, Saint Mary's Hall's current home is a 60-acre campus in Northeast San Antonio. The campus is very conveniently located for traveling squads a mere 5 miles from San Antonio International Airport, with numerous hotels in immediate proximity to its campus.

Saint Mary's Hall's main objective in hosting this event is to create the best experience possible for all attending programs. Please know that your squad's entry fees will be utilized to provide the best possible judging pool and hospitality possible.

In lieu of trophies this year, we have made a commitment to donate the funds that would have been spent to a noble cause. We will create a list of charities and invite each of the Tournament Champions to designate which charity they would like to support. 

We intend to offer - Humorous and Dramatic Interpretation, Program of Oral Interpretation, Foreign and Domestic Extemporaneous Speaking, Original Oratory, Informative Speaking, Duet Acting, Duo Interpretation, Cross-Examination, Lincoln-Douglas, Public Forum, and Congressional Debates, as well as Oral Interpretation (Prose/Poetry, alternatively in-round). 

This is our ninth year as a TFA Qualifier, and we are pleased to have been named a bid tournament for the 2019 NIETOC, as well as the Extemporaneous Speaking TOC.

Also, we are pleased to offer the Jennifer S. Parrish Memorial Award for Excellence in Forensics to the highest point-earning junior or senior nominated by his/her coach. Nominations will be taken at registration.

Entries will be taken on-line via this website.  Please, no mailed-in entries.

We look forward to seeing you and your students!
