Dear Coach and Squad:



The Ladue Horton Watkins Chapter of the National Forensic League would like to invite you to attend our fifty-fifth annual Ladue Novice Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament on the 19th and 20th of November. We will be hosting in conjunction with the varsity tournament at Clayton High School. We will be using Speechwire and using Zoom to host rounds.


We shall offer competition in the following events: Extemporaneous Speaking, Informative Speaking, Original Oratory, Radio Speaking, Interpretation (combined Humorous and Dramatic), Poetry Reading, Prose Reading, Storytelling, Congressional Debate, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Policy Debate, and Public Forum Debate. We invite you to enter up to four entries per event and we will take entries from the waiting list on a first come, first served basis.


Also, please note the judging obligations for each school.  Please fill out our ONLINE JUDGING FORM for ANY of your school judges, including student judges. Of course, if varsity members do not advance they are also welcome to contact us during the tournament to be added to the pool. Please remember that students must be in their second year of competition with at least 150 NSDA points to judge.


If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. My cell phone number is 314.807.1571. You may send tournament related e-mails to me at mbeck@ladueschools.net. E-mail is the best method of communication.


Entries shall be accepted until Wednesday, 10 November 2021 at 5:00pm. We would appreciate your confirmed entry no later than Monday, 15 November 2021 at 5:00pm - drops after this time forfeit the entry fee. Drops on the day of the tournament will result in a deduction of five sweepstakes points per entry.


We would like to extend our gratitude to Cara Borgsmiller and the Parkway West Speech and Debate team for putting together the norms, policies, and procedures the Saint Louis area is using for virtual tournaments. As always, we are incredibly grateful for Cara’s leadership and service to this activity and our district.


We look forward to welcoming you for a weekend of virtual competition!  


Thank you,


Ryan Tung                                            Molly Beck                   Casie Sambo
