Dear Colleagues,
The Northwest Speech Team would like to invite you to the 2021 Viking Voice Speech Invitational on February 20th, 2021 held at Northwest High School.  We hope to offer a competitive tournament as teams prepare for both NSDA Districts and Conference meets.  In addition, Northwest is once again a qualifying tournament for NIETOC.  The NIETOC Qualifying events are Humorous Interpretation, Dramatic/Serious Interpretation, Program of Oral Interpretation, Duet Acting, Informative and Persuasive(Oratory) and other supplemental events.  Check out http://nietoc.com/faq/ for more information.
CHANGES:  We will allow Inform a 10 min max time limit to account for NIETOC Qualifiers.  However, speeches delivered with NSAA 8 min rules will be judged as the same without penalty.
EVENTS  Our tournament is an open competition (no novice), offering all ten NSAA Events, including the new NSAA Class A and NIETOC qualifying event, POI(Program of Oral Interpretation).
For those out of state schools interested in Nebraska rules,  this is the link to our judges manual:  https://nsaa-static.s3.amazonaws.com/textfile/speech/spjudgeman.pdf
