The Union Grove High School Forensics Team welcomes your team to our Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 5th at Union Grove High School. All questions regarding the information below should be addressed to Jennifer Jackowski at jackjen@ug.k12.wi.us or 262-878-2434 ext. 1253. 
We will run the tournament using the WHSFA scoring rubrics.  However, as we encourage participation of all schools, regardless of organization affiliation, all rulings will be made to the benefit of the student.  For example, we accept a 2nd person in Demo speaking, multiple radio voices, notes/notecard/reader’s stand in categories which state the use of such is appropriate, electronic devices for Extemp, 10- or 12-minute time limits for group events, the more specific descriptions provided by WHSFA in Special Occasion, the use of script as a prop in interp categories, and the use of chairs/stools in Solo Acting, Group Interp, and Playacting.
Entries: 4 entries per category.  We do NOT allow double-entries.  JV entries are welcome, but only the top 25 entries will earn points toward the team award.  Individual trophies will be given to the top three students in each category with medals for finalists.  There will be team trophies for the Top 3 large schools (18-25 entries) and the Top 3 small schools (10-17 entries).  Remember, that you must have a judge for every 5 entries.  I may have judges for hire at a cost of $100/judge.  You must notify me 2 weeks before the tournament should you need one.
Registration:  You must register for the tournament on SpeechWire.  Let me know if you have any technical difficulties (jackjen@ug.k12.wi.us).  Please have all your entries on SpeechWire by Fri., Jan. 28th.  Whatever your judge total is on the 28th based on your entries, is what you will be responsible for bringing to the tournament on Feb. 5th.  Minor edits may be made on SpeechWire until the day of the tournament!  Come Feb. 5th, you will NOT be allowed to make any changes.  All drops MUST then be texted to me at 262-930-6058.
Day of the tournament: Please do not arrive until 7:45 AM! Please ask your bus drivers to drop students off in the southern lot of the school. (Doors are located to the left of the weight room which is next to our football field.)
Food:  We will provide pre-ordered boxed lunches for students from Jimmy John's Subs (choice of (Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, BLT, or Veggie) sub, chips, cookie, and water). Food information must be entered into SpeechWire to ensure accuracy.  It is estimated the boxed dinner will cost $10 for a meal. If a team wishes to bring their own food from another source, that is fine. (Coaches and judges will be provided with food for no charge in the Judges’ Lounge Rm. 146.)  Masks are optional.
