THIS TOURNAMENT IS CLOSED TO REGISTRATION.  WE ARE AT MAXIMUM CAPACITY. THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO ALREADY REGISTERED.  
 
Dear Speech Coach:
 
Glenbard South High School Speech Team cordially invites you to participate in our very first Glenbard South Invitational Tournament, on January 22, 2022.   This completely in-person tournament will consist of 3  prelim rounds and a final round with 3 judges in all 14 events.  It is our goal to provide a friendly and fun tournament for students from schools with smaller and less competitive teams like ours. Each team will be eligible to compete for a team award and individuals from each team will be eligible to advance to the elimination rounds.  Students who place in the top 6 of final rounds will receive ribbons, and the team sweepstakes champion will receive a trophy.
 
Entry Fees & Judge Requirements:
$150 for 1 entry in any one or all 14 events (3 Judges)
$175 for teams with 2 entries in any event (4 Judges)
$200 for teams with 3 entries in any event (5 Judges)
(No team will be allowed to enter more than 3 entries per event.)
 
Judges: 
You must enter your judges on Speechwire by Monday, Jan. 17, at 6PM.  Your hired judges need to be available on Saturday until 4PM. We will be using most if not all of them, and ask that your judges be clean. We will make every effort to ensure that your judges do not judge any students from your team, but we cannot guarantee that 100%.
 
Limited Prep Events (RADIO, EXTEMP, IMPROMPTU):
For the preliminary Radio rounds, students will create and bring their own Radio script using news from no more than 24 hours prior to the tournament.  For the final round of Radio, students will prep in the Library and will be supplied with a packet of stories in order to create a new script.  Students will need to bring their own manila folder, scissors, and tape.
 
EXT will prep before each round.  Please add 3 EXT and 3 IMP topic suggestions in Speechwire by Monday, January 17, at 6PM.
 
Duets:
Duets will count as part of team sweeps.
 
Triple-Entering:
Please use your best judgement in terms of triple-entering students. 
 
Tab/Help Desk
Our Tab Room/Help Desk will open at 7:30AM and will be located in the Teachers Offices connected to the LRC.  If you or a judge runs into any issue, if you want to check how your kids are doing, or if you just want to pop in, say hello, you are encouraged to do so.
 
Awards:
Final Round individual results and team rankings will be announced and students will be called up on stage in the auditorium at 4PM.
 
Food:
The Concession Stand will be open all day during the tournament.  Students may purchase breakfast, lunch, and snack items to be consumed in the Commons/Cafeteria.  
 
Team Tables & Masks:
Each team will be assigned to a specific area in the Commons/Cafeteria.  (Look for your school name on the tables.)  Masks must be worn by all individuals in the building at all times, except when eating in the Commons/Cafeteria.
