Any entry in Extemp, Impromptu, and Radio requires uploads of three separate original videos via four YouTube links. Prep materials for these categories will be sent on Friday, February 26.

Any entry in Storytelling requires three separate original videos via three YouTube links. Stories are assigned by round: Round 1: Ghosts/vampires/zombies/other undead; Round 2: Fable; and Round 3: Finally being heard.

Any entry in Extemp, Impromptu, Radio, and Storytelling will require the speaker to choose one of the three performances to serve as the final round video. Upload this link in video #4. 


The top three speakers in each category will receive trophies—finalists will receive medals. The top two large schools, top two medium schools, and top two small school teams will receive trophies. Distinctions of large, medium, and small school categories are contingent on participating team sizes and will be determined on the day of the event.

We look forward to “seeing” you at our event.
