Since this is going to the first tournament of the season for most of us, tasks will be sent out via email to coaches on Monday, January 31st. Please distribute them to your students to help facilitate the discussions.  We also plan on moving discussion rounds back 15 minutes for possible double entries.  If there are none, then we will move discussion rounds back to start on time with the other categories.

All students and judges will need a live.speechwire.com account. Please set that up before Saturday morning. Have everyone log in to their account to verify that their account works.

 

JUDGING

 

For judges, we are going to offer both paper ballots/critiques as well as online ballots/critiques. Please note upon registration of your judges which method they prefer. If using online ballots, please make sure all critiques are entered before the end of the tournament.
