The Neenah Forensics Team invites you to the Neenah Invitational on Saturday, February 20, 2021.

Virtual tournaments are new or new-ish to most of us.  We are here to help you through this process!  We are all learning how to continue this activity as smoothly as possible during a very difficult time.  We will get through this together!

We are running a synchronous tournament, which means students will compete in live rounds with other students in their categories.  We believe this offers the best learning experience for both students and coaches, so we appreciate your willingness to spend a Saturday on your computer.

We are offering all standard WFCA events, and if sufficient entries warrant, we will offer Novice Prose and Poetry competitions.  We are going to try to hold a power round in all categories as well.

We are providing awards this year, but because we will be mailing them to you, we’ve swapped plaques for team trophies and large/small medals for the usual individual trophies/medal mix.  We will award plaques to the top three teams in three divisions.  We will determine divisions based on entries the week of the tournament.  

We are running a WFCA tournament, but we invite both WFCA and WHSFA schools to virtually attend!  

ENTRIES:  Teams may enter as many entries as they would like with up to the top 25 counting toward the team score.  We welcome triple-entries and in any category, but we ask that no students cross enter in extemp and radio, simply because it requires too much time during a round and will put us behind.  Note: Novice Prose/Poetry are only open to students competing in their first year of high school forensics; not their first year in the category.    

RULESWFCA rules will apply in all events.  To accommodate the category differences between WFCA and WHSFA, Public Address competitors may enter as Oratory entries.  We will advise judges not to penalize speeches in Oratory that resemble WHSFA Public Address speeches.  But please note, no chairs in Group Interpretation or the solo acting categories are allowed.  We will also be observing the 10-minute time limit for Group Interpretation and Play Acting.  

JUDGES:  Please provide one qualified and technology-capable judge for every five entries or fraction thereof.  If you are short on judges, you may hire one of our independent extra judges at a rate of $150/judge.  You must provide the number of judges you indicate on your original entry. Make sure your judges can handle judging via online means prior to entering them on your registration.  Judges must meet all ballot submissions deadlines or your team will be assessed a nuisance fee.  

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Thursday, February 18, 2021 via Speechwire.com 

FEES:  $9 per individual entry and $15 for each group entry (Duo, Group Interpretation, and Play Acting) as of your team’s registration on Speechwire through 5:00 P.M. on Thursday, February 18.  Please make checks payable to Neenah Forensics.  

QUESTIONS?: Contact Andie Peterson-Longmore (920)655-8048 or at andrea.peterson-longmore@neenah.k12.wi.us Please note that I may not be able to field calls or emails during the school day.

DEADLINES and SCHEDULE:

Thursday, February 18 – All entries must be in Speechwire by Thursday Feb. 18th at 5:00 P.M.

Saturday, February 20, 7:00-8:00 A.M. – School Check in- Please text your changes to Andie by 8:00!  If you don’t get a response, please assume I did not get the message and try again.

Saturday February 20, 8:30 A.M - We are starting rounds “early” in order to get moving.  We figured since there is no real “travel time” that it would be okay to get a jump on things. 

Saturday, January 20,  12:45 P.M (or earlier if possible). LIVE Zoom Meeting Judges Meeting/Assignment of Power Rounds/Ballot Distribution to Judges (Coaches will get a link prior to the tournament).  Judges must view/evaluate final round entries immediately after release and submit within 90 minutes.  If we have a big power round for an event, we will discuss submission accommodations at the Zoom event.  Power Rounds also posted on Speechwire.

Saturday, February 20, : 3:00 P.M. – Awards.  Depending upon the number of registrations, we will utilize the video streaming service most appropriate.  We will send information to you the week of the tournament.  We will release student critiques and the results packet ASAP after the tournament.  We will mail you any awards your team earns.

We look forward to working with you to create this opportunity for all of our students and making this day a success.

Regards,

Andie Peterson-Longmore Daniel Dibble
