1.    There is no limit on the number of team entries per event.

2.    Students may enter a maximum of six events; two duos count as two events.

3.    Entries are due via SpeechWire no later than Tuesday, March 1, at 6 pm EST. Entries without video links at that time will be dropped.

4.    The same event recording will be used for preliminary and final rounds. Please ensure the video is “unlisted” on YouTube rather than set to “private” so that judges can successfully view the recording. It is important that you confirm all of your team’s video links are accurate and accessible by the registration deadline.

5.    LP prompts will be released as a downloadable file on the Lucky 7 SpeechWire page by Noon on Friday, February 25.



1.    Entry fees are $7 per event slot.

2.    Please provide a qualified judge for every six events. All uncovered slots will incur an additional $15 fee. 

3.    Any judges dropped after ballots have been released will each be assessed a $100 fee. 

4.    Any judges failing to turn ballots in on time will each be assessed a $100 fee (unless arrangements have been made in advance with the tournament director).

5.    A finalized JMU invoice will be emailed directly to head coaches or team captains after the conclusion of the tournament along with payment information about how to make out checks.

6.    Payments are due in the form of mailed checks within 30 days after final invoices are emailed (unless other payment arrangements have been approved prior).



We will use AFA-style rules and tabulation. The tournament will run in accordance with recent AFA-NST changes for the 2021-2022 competitive season. All relevant AFA-NST legislation for regular-season qualifying tournaments will guide the tournaments’ policies. Recording of performances is prohibited.
