We are excited to extend this invitation to attend the 2021 Lincoln Southwest Silver Talon Speech Tournament.  The competition will be held on Saturday, January 23, 2021.   We hope you and your team have the opportunity to attend our nineteenth annual tournament. We are pleased to announce that we are a bid tournament for the 2021 National Individual Events Tournament of Champions in Houston, TX. Please discover more about the NIETOC at www.nietoc.com.
We will be running a hybrid tournament, with ALL individual events being synchronous using the NSDA Campus virtual competition rooms, and ALL group events being asynchronous, using pre-recorded videos. Please see 'Files for Download' to find information about videotaping expectations.
Key aspects for this year include:
        *Three preliminary rounds in all the events.
        *We will offer separate divisions for Duo Interpretation and Duet Acting. Students may enter both but must perform a different selection in each.
        *Students may QUAD enter, as long as at least one of them is asynchronous so that they are in no more than three live events. All contestants in three or more events will be eligible for the individual sweepstakes award.
        *Events will have Champ/Honor/Merit finals (based on entry numbers).
*Finals - Medals for champs finalists; certificates for additional final round participants. Recognition for NIETOC bid recipients.
*Triathlon - Banners for the top three individuals.
*Sweepstakes - Plaques will be awarded to the top three teams. 
Entries will only be accepted on-line via www.speechwire.com. Deadline for entries is Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 12 pm. Fees will be assessed when registrations closes.  Changes or drops after the deadline may be emailed to mheimes@lps.org, but will not reduce fees. Additional entries will be allowed if space permits.
Entries will cost $8 each (individual or group). You will need to provide one judge for every seven entries or pay $15 for each uncovered entry. There is also a $20 school fee to help pay with virtual room rental and shipping expenses regarding awards.
We will be using NSAA guidelines for the nine Nebraska events. Full descriptions can be found at www.nsaahome.org.  After drawing topics in their speaking rooms, Impromptu speakers will have five minutes to prep a 3-5 minute speech, which may be delivered from one 4x6 notecard. This year we are again offering Program Oral Interp, which, along with Duo Interp, will follow the standard NSDA rules. Informative Speaking will use a 10-minute time limit and OID will use the 15-minute option.
