Come back to Port Washington for Year 4! Our new school is completed and awaiting your arrival!


March 5, 2022

Port Washington High School



  1. Registration will be done through www.speechwire.com; initial entries and judges must be on speechwire.com by Thursday, March 3, 2022. All adds must be completed by March 3rd through speechwire.com. Drops may be done until Friday, March 4 at 3 p.m. Any adds after the deadline must be done by contacting the tournament host.


  1. Fees (registration and judges) will be assessed based on your entries on March 4. Fees are $10 per individual entry and $15 for group entry. The judging requirements are as follows: 1 judge for every 5 competitors (or fraction thereof). If you cannot meet your judging requirement, independent judges may be hired by the tournament at a fee of $150. Judge requirements will increase with added students.


  1. Rules: This tournament is run according to the rules of the Wisconsin Forensics Coaches Association.  We will offer WFCA categories including impromptu. To accommodate the category differences between WFCA and WHSFA, Public Address competitors may enter as Oratory entries.  We will advise judges not to penalize speeches in those categories that resemble their WHSFA approximations.  But please note, no notecards in Oratory or chairs in the solo acting categories are allowed.

  2. COVID Mitigation: We will follow the WFCA mitigation recommendations to the best of our ability: masks will be required of all students and judges unless actively eating, drinking, or performing. Concessions will be offered to students in the form of prepackaged food and drink. Judges will have limited prepackaged food offered. Ballots and critiques will be done digitally. We will have designated seating in the cafeteria with team rooms available upon request. We will be seated in a large group for awards; however, we will designate areas for teams. 

5. Entries: You may enter up to 10 students in each event. The top 25 entries will be counted toward team awards. Students may double enter in any event.
