Dear Forensics Colleague,
 
Papillion La Vista South High School cordially invites you to attend the 11th annual PL South Speech Tournament on Saturday, December 4, 2021.  This year, we are excited and proud to announce that we are a NIETOC National Qualifying tournament!  We will have three preliminary rounds and finals. Please read over the invitation and e-mail me if you have any questions at laurie.hicks@plcschools.org.
 
EVENTS: HI, DI, Poetry, POI, DUO, Extemp, OO, Informative,  Impromptu, Entertainment.
 
ENTRIES: Students may TRIPLE enter at their own risk.  We will not hold rounds for cross entries. 
 
We will be tabbing without speaker points on the ballots.  Tiebreaking to decide who makes finals is based on 1) prelim round combined ranks, 2) opponent's strength, 3) head to head, 4) prelim reciprocals. Finals tiebreaking will be 1) rank in finals, 2) judge's pref in finals, 3) final round reciprocals, 4) prelim round ranks, 5) prelim round opponent's strength.
 
We will use electronic ballots this year! Please bring an electronic device (phone, ipad, or laptop) with wireless capabilities in order to fulfill judging requirements. All schematics will be posted via Speechwire, please have your students subscribe to the tournament and follow their code to receive updates. 
 
MASKS: Masks are optional.  Students MAY wear masks while performing, if they so choose.  Judges will be instructed not to penalize any competitor performing in a mask.
 
FEES: The entry fee is $8 per event.  ENTRIES ARE DUE BY 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1st.  
 
JUDGES: You must provide one adult, qualified judge for every 5 entries.  Since we are using e-ballots this year, judges need a valid email address when you register them on Speechwire. 
ANY ENTRY NOT ‘COVERED’ BY YOUR JUDGES WILL COST AN ADDITIONAL $15/ENTRY. Please try to cover with as many UNAFFILIATED judges as possible. If you have a very large entry, and a lot of affiliated judges, I may not be able to use all of your judges. 
 
LATE CHANGES: After the deadline, please contact Laurie Hicks with any changes at: 
Cell: 402-297-2103; Email (preferred): laurie.hicks@plcschools.org
