Hello Speech Colleagues!
I would like to offer a warm welcome to you and your team and invite you to the 22nd Annual ROSEBOWL Tournament on Saturday, March 20, 2021. This tournament is hosted by Roseville Area High School and will utilize SpeechWire with NSDA campus for a virtual tournament. The tournament will be synchronous for all categories, except Duo Interpretation (Duo entries will submit a video link for judges).
We will be hosting all 13 MSHSL categories plus Program Oral Interpretation (POI) and both MSHSL and NSDA rules will be honored. This tournament also splits Extemp Speaking into a preference for Domestic/US topics and International topics, please be aware to register accordingly. We will allow double entering (including discussion and a non-draw event, but not in discussion and a draw event nor two draw events).  
We will offer 3 preliminary rounds of competition, Honor Finals & Finals in all categories (all students will compete in one division).  I am excited to report that the Rosebowl is a National Individual Events Tournament of Champions (NIETOC) bid tournament! For many of you, this will be one last chance to earn enough bids to qualify for NIETOC! Due to this, we may offer more final rounds in Humor, Duo, Drama, Extemp Speaking, Prose, POI and Oratory, depending on registration size. If more final rounds are offered, they will take place at the same time as the other final rounds and will not add to the length of the tournament.
I want to make you all aware that we will not be hosting an award ceremony at the Rosebowl. Following the final rounds (approximately 3:45 or soon after), results will be posted on SpeechWire as soon as possible to celebrate the success of all students!
Most of the information you might need can be found on the SpeechWire web-site. If you have any other questions, please contact me at jodi.kyllonen@isd623.org   (651) 261-1582
I look forward to hosting you and your team on March 20 for this virtual tournament experience!
Jodi Kyllonen, Roseville Speech Director


You may enter as many students as you wish in any category. You may make any changes to your registration up until 3:00 pm on Friday, March 19. You may still make drops after that deadline, but you will be responsible for your entry fees at that time, regardless of drops between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.  

Entry fees are $25.00 per team (to cover the additional cost to use NSDA Campus) and $7.00 for each entry.

Checks should be mailed to: Roseville Speech | Attn: Jodi Kyllonen | 1240 Co Rd B2 West | Roseville MN 55113



Check in will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.   You will make any registration changes/last minutes drops on SpeechWire.com until 8:00 am on Saturday morning. Coaches and judges can use this Zoom link to check in and to ask any questions during the day: https://isd623.zoom.us/j/89128122781?pwd=MVVRZXJRd1BNdjUrak1QQmJBblpLdz09



You will need one judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof.  All judges are expected to be available through final rounds.

We schedule the judges based on the number of students you originally register; we cannot make accommodations Saturday morning because of drops.

Please indicate any of your judges who are unaffiliated with your school or students in any way – we encourage you to bring as many unaffiliated judges as you are able.

Judges will be assigned their rounds through live.SpeechWire.com and then manage their competition round through NSDA campus. This is a platform within SpeechWire and does not require a separate log-in. Judges will use e-balloting to report their ranks and critique comments.


Online Format: All rounds will be live (except for Duo). Students will compete synchronously using live.speechwire.com and NSDA Campus. We want to ensure all students have an equitible oppprtunity and so if there is any reason why students can't compete live, please reach out to Jodi Kyllonen for accommodations. We will come up with a solution for equity reasons.

Both MSHSL and NSDA rules will be honored. Please make sure your judges are aware of this.

We are offering Program Oral Intepretation (POI).

We are splitting Extemp Speaking into Domestic and International (students cannot be double entered in both), so please register accordingly.

Since this is a NIETOC bid tournament, students with poetry pieces can be entered in Dramatic Interpretation (prose is it's own NIETOC bid category now!).

Discussion tasks will be brought to the round by each judge.  Discussion tasks will be taken from each section of the outline.


ALL DRAWS: Each of the three draw events will draw fresh for each round, including all three prelims and finals.   Draws will take place on-line through Zoom. The Draw Room LInk will be sent out through live.SpeechWire.com just like the link for rounds is sent.

Storytelling: Stories will be taken from the entire list.

Extemp Reading: Stories and poems will be taken from the entire lists.

Extemp Speaking:  There will be separate topic areas for each round.
