Dear coaches!


You are cordially invited to the Mile High Invitational being hosted virtually Friday and Saturday November 13th and 14th using Speechwire’s asynchronous IE competition and live debate! This tournament will offer 5 preliminary rounds of pre-recorded Individual Events  followed by quarterfinal breaks, with debate events competing in four synchronous preliminary rounds, breaking to Octofinals.  This is our 10 year anniversary of hosting the Mile High Invitational and what a unique celebration it will be as we look forward to welcoming students and coaches from all over the country to our virtual world of national caliber competition, during this unprecedented year, where speech and debate is as necessary as it has ever been. We want to thank all the coaches and participants whose patience, passion, and hard work ensures that we survive and thrive in this exciting and extraordinary new landscape.

Your registration must be proportional to the judges provided. 1 speech judge covers 6 entries, 1 debate judge covers 2 entries. Failure to provide judges information by November 9th to cover your entries will result in entries being dropped, to satisfy these ratios.
