A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away…






Turmoil has engulfed the Western Slope. The taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems is in dispute.


Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of deadly battleships, the greedy Trade Federation has stopped all shipping to the small planet of Earth.


While the congress of the Republic endlessly debates this alarming chain of events, the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched a battalion of Speech & Debate teams, the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, to settle the conflict.... 



Central High School of Grand Junction is excited to host the Star Wars Invitational, a themed tournament of galactic proportions! The tournament is scheduled IN PERSON for Saturday, December, 11th at Central HIgh School (550 Warrior Way, Grand Junction, CO).


Students and coaches are encouraged to attend dressed as their favorite character from the Star Wars universe (non-canon welcome, GET CREATIVE). A costume competition will be held during awards and the top three students will be presented with lightsaber trophies. Stars Wars decorations and other themed elements will be included throughout the tournament. PLEASE NO GUN/BLASTER COSTUME ELEMENTS!


Please REGISTER on Speechwire by Friday, December 3rd. Registration is $8.00 for individual events and $16.00 for team events (DUO and PF). Registration fees will not be refunded after December 8th (on Speechwire or the morning of the tournament) for any drops.
