Coaches please make sure to register online to serve as a judge for your school. Also register any additional judges you are bringing with you to meet your requirements. Teachers, Parents, and community members will be serving as judges, but I need to know which coaches will be judging in order to make sure we have an adequate judging pool. Please bring 1 judge per 4 entries in LD or CX. Please provide 1 judge per 15 speech entries. There is a $50 judge fee for all missing judge obligations.
Students will be held in the cafeteria. Please make sure they know when and where their events are.
Interp, Extemp, Impromptu, Record Mime & Storytelling will have prelims, semis, and finals unless we can condense to expedite the competition.
Novice & Senior Prose & Poetry will only need one piece and documentation is NOT required. We will follow the 2018-2019 UIL categories.
We will be using the FALL UIL Debate topic.
We will NOT have elimination rounds in Debate. We will run 3 rounds and results will be tabulated off of the results of those three rounds.
If you have any Questions please call or email me.
