Dear Coaches,
We are pleased to invite you to attend the 2021 Lincoln North Star Beaus and Belles of the Bayou Tournament.  The competition will be held on Saturday, February 13th, 2021, and we hope you will consider joining us! This year we are a proud NIETOC National Qualifying tournament! 
Our tournament will run over Zoom via Speechwire. Please be sure that all students and judges have an active Speechwire account. Their rounds will be blasted to them through this Speechwire account (much like how your judges got e-ballots last year). We will be running all events Synchronously with the exception of OID and Duo in order to abide by school policies and DHHS guidelines. OID and DUO will run Asynchronously and split-screen. Please have the video links to me by Thursday, February 11th at 9:00 PM. 
Entries will only be accepted online via www.speechwire.com. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, February 10th at 9:00 PM.  Fees will be assessed when registration closes.  Additional entries will be allowed only if space permits.
Entries will cost $8 each (individual or group). You will need to provide one judge for every six entries or pay $15 for each uncovered entry. 
The following events will be offered: Informative*, Original Oratory*, Extemporaneous*, Entertainment, Humorous Interpretation*, Dramatic Interpretation*, Poetry, Program of Oral Interpretation, Duet/Duo*, and Oral Interpretation of Drama.  Students may triple enter.  A Top Novice award will be given in all individual events, as well. Events with an * are NIETOC events.  
- EXT will run a 30 min prep
- INF will run a 10 minute time-limit: your judges may see scripts written to the 8:00 or the 10:00 limit: please ask that they are flexible when considering time as a factor in ranking
- Duet and Duo will be run together with a 12 min time limit (please be aware that NIETOC has a 10 min limit)
- Rules regarding script/notecard use and time limits of events will be based off NSAA guidelines
- We follow the NIETOC rule regarding overtime: Speakers exceeding this time limit by more than 30 seconds shall not be ranked first--do NOT penalize speakers beyond this!
