Dear Coach: 

We are cordially inviting you and/or your students to participate in The MASQ (Making Art while Socially Quarantined) Junior Fall Fest hosted by The Perfect Performance, LLC. Our asynchronous competition will be held October 22-24, 2020.

In light of the chaos created by the coronavirus, we are attempting to bring the nation's best and brightest students involved in individual events closer together while practicing social distance.  The MASQ is designed to give competitors a competitive digital experience with competitive costs and no judge requirements.

There are no qualification pre-requisites for a student to enter this tournament. This competition is open to all students elementary through 8th grade, provided your state association permits online and national competition. We are also allowing independent entries at this competition, so students may register and pay for themselves for this tournament (if your state allows doing so). Each student must submit a single-take (non-edited) videotaped performance in one or more of the following events:  Dramatic Interp, Humorous Interp, Original Oratory, Informative, Prose, Poetry, Declamation, Storytelling, TV Commercial, Duo Interp, or Reader’s Theatre. Students can enter however many events they wish. The same video will be used for all rounds of competition in each event.

Fees are $30 per event for all entries registered by October 10. A late fee of $10 per entry will be assessed for all entries registered between October 10 & 14. No entries will be accepted after October 14. Each school will also owe a judge fee of $100, which covers all entries and replaces the need to provide any judges. Payments are due on the final day of each entry period; late payments will incur a penalty based on the dates mentioned above. Unpaid entries after October 15 will be dropped from the competition. Entry fees are non-refundable. Payment options will be available at the bottom of your invoice page. If you have any trouble there, you can also use this link to pay via PayPal or with a debit/credit card:  https://paypal.me/themasq?locale.x=en_US

We are planning for three preliminary rounds, quarterfinals (if entries warrant), semifinals and finals. Performances will be judged and critiqued by a nationwide panel of experts who specialize in forensics and theatre. Electronic ballots (with videotaped performances embedded) will be used and educational critiques will be provided to the students immediately following the competition. Students are not required to be present for any part of the tournament. Planned awards include masks and medals for the Top 3; remaining finalists will receive masks. 

Coaches and competitors will be emailed links to some of the exciting live features planned for this tournament: Opening Ceremonies, Announcements of Advancing Entries, and Awards. These special events will be added to the tournament schedule ASAP.

REGISTRATION STEPS:

1-Confirm receipt/acceptance of legally binding document. Coaches registering multiple students will be sent directions for how to do this for each individual.

2-Submit your entries in each of the various categories.

3-Provide piece information (titles, authors, publishers, etc.)

4-Click on Current Invoice in order to pay fees electronically.

5-Record and upload video (Because it will not allow you to advance without adding information, we recommend adding the words ‘PENDING’ here until you are able to provide the final video clip link.)

6-Once all steps are completed and verified for every entry, your participation will be officially approved and you will receive a confirmation email. Any missing steps will appear on the Registration Page as a ‘Not Yet Approved’ statement in red.

Details regarding our events, schedule, rules and video submission procedures are also available under the ‘Files for Download’ feature of our SpeechWire tournament page.
