Schools which enter at least 25 contestants shall be required to cover seventy-five percent (75%) of their entry with “clean” judges. One judge will cover six IE entries.  If your school needs to hire a clean judge at $20 per round in order to meet MISL bylaws, please e-mail Timothy Ward (tward12@emich.edu) as soon as possible.  We will put you in contact with some folks you can hire and pay directly if necessary.

Awards presented

§  The top six (6) speakers in each IE event.

§  The top novice in each event

§  The top community college competitor in each event.

§  The top three (3) schools in sweepstakes.

§  The community college finishing highest in sweepstakes.

§  The top two contestants in oratory shall represent Michigan at that year’s Interstate Oratory Association’s Tournament.

§  The top three contestants in qudrathon will receive awards.  To qualify a student must be entered in at least four events, one of each genre (oral interpretation, limited preparation, and public address).  If the student is entered in more than four events, only the top score in each genre and the student’s next top scoring event will be used in determining results. Tabulation of points will be identical to the tabulation of team sweepstakes, with preliminary points halved and added to final round total.  A quadrathon entry will count as a slot in calculation of fees, but it will not count as a slot in the calculation of the Director’s Trophy winner.

§  The Director’s trophy for Quality will be awarded to the school with the highest overall slot quality, determined by dividing the school’s total sweepstakes points by the total number of slots that that school entered into the State Championship Tournament as of the close of registration.



$10.00 for each I.E. slot

$20.00 for each uncovered I.E. slot

$20.00 per dropped entry prior to registration

$30.00 per dropped judge

$50.00 per dropped entry at registration (slots and judges)
