MILLARD NORTH HIGH SCHOOL FORENSICS
Omaha, Nebraska
2021 Millard North Mustang Invitational
Sat Jan 9th, 2021
 
We are excited to be a bid tournament for the 2021 NIETOC Tournament 
 
we will be hosting a remote tournament, but all events except for duo will be live and synchronous. Duo will be synchronous, but not live. You will submit split screen duo videos (more info to come under files for download). 
 
 
 
Events:  We will be hosting open (no separate novice and varsity divisions but we will offer a top novice award in all events except DUO) divisions in Humorous Interp, Dramatic Interp, Duo Interp, Poetry Interp, Original Oratory, Informative Speaking, Entertainment Speaking, Extemp Speaking, Program Oral Interpretation. Please note this is DUO and NOT Duet Acting. NSDA time limit and rules for DUO will be enforced. If you have any questions on rules for events please contact me. 
 
Triathlon: Students many triple enter and be eligible for a triathlon award in any 3 events. Please realize that getting to rounds on time is the speaker's responsibility and the judge will not wait beyond the start time of the next round for any reason. 
 
Awards: We will be giving awards based on entry numbers. We will break as many as receive bids for NIETOC events (6, 12, 18 depending on entries). Non NIETOC events I anticipate the top 12, but we will see what the entry numbers are.  
We will also provide a "top novice" award in each event for the highest placing novice. 
 
 
Judges: Please provide one judge for every five entries. There will be a fee of $12.00 per uncovered entry. These judges and their names are due at the close of registration on Wednesday Jan 6th at 5:00pm. If you are short on judges I will require that the coach be entered as a judge, thank you for your understanding on this.
