Welcome to the inaugural Stuart Novice Only Invitational.
 
January 8, 2021 with a start time of 8:00 a.m. and a 12:00 p.m. finish.
 
This is a novice competition.  Please limit your entries to first-year speech competitors. We will be running all events except extemp at the same time, so please be mindful of the number of entries.  Technically, speakers could enter up to three individual events or two group events, but please be mindful of the schedule.  We are on a tight schedule to get everyone out of Stuart in time for ballgames, and if you think your student will not be able to get to each of the speaking engagements, please do not register them.
 
Extemp will have only two rounds, but will have two judges in each round. All other events will have three preliminary rounds. NSAA rules will be followed and all nine events will be offered. 
 
We will use electronic ballots. Plan accordingly with devices.
 
We plan to award certificates to all students and we will not keep sweepstakes points.  We want this to be a learning experience for everyone.
 
Please provide one judge for every five entries. For this meet, we will welcome your experienced varsity members as judges.  I will also need help in the extemp room. (Let me know if you are interested.)
 
Fees will be $5.00 for each entry plus $10.00 for each entry not covered by a judge. The deadline for entries is Sunday, January 2nd.  There will be no refunds for scratches made after January 6th.
 
Breakfast and lunch items will be provided for coaches, judges, and bus drivers in the lounge. 
 
A concession stand in the gym will be available for contestants.   There will be basketball practice for our Stuart Athletic Club elementary students in the gym as well.  We will be determining homerooms when we know how many schools will be attending.
