Dear Coach and Team,        

The Platte County High School Speech and Debate Team would like to invite you to the Platte County Talking Pirate Novice Tournament. The tournament will be held IN PERSON January 28-29, 2022

We will host the following events on Friday: Open Extemp, Original Oratory, Humorous Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Poetry Reading, Prose Reading, Duo Interpretation, Informative Speaking, Storytelling, Live Radio Speaking, and Student Congress (December docket).  

We will be hosting Lincoln Douglas Debate and Public Forum Debate on Saturday.

This is the first in-person tournament our district has held in several years, so we aren’t sure what our judging pool will look like. In an effort to provide maximum opportunities for competitors, we ask that each school provide ONE judge per every ten entries.  This can be a varsity member with 250 NSDA points who is not competing in another tournament. 

The deadline for receiving entries on Speechwire.com will be Tuesday January 18, 2022, at 3:00PM.  All entries will be waitlisted upon entry – we will grant what we can accommodate and send out a confirmation of entries on or before Saturday, 1/22.  Entry fees will be $8.00/entry. These fees will be assessed for all entries as of Friday, January 21, 12:00pm.  

Direct any questions to Trisch Vessar (816) 858-2822 Ext. 1281 (classroom phone), (816) 508-5408 (personal cell), or vessarp@platteco.k12.mo.us.

Trisch Vessar, Head Speech & Debate Coach 

Amber Polner, Assistant Coach
