Steve Kirkpatrick Memorial Speech Tournament

Concord High School

November 19, 2022


The Concord High School Speech Team invites you to our annual speech tournament.  We will offer all 15 ISSDA speech events (Combined Extemp) as well as Congress and LD. All normal ISSDA rules apply, unless otherwise specified. Please make sure to read through all of the following information carefully. It will be a full day of competition. ALL TIMES LISTED ARE EST.


Speech Meet Information


Speech Registration: 8:00-8:30am in front of the Media Center. Extemp Prep starts at 8:45am with round 1 in all events starting at 9:15am.


Entries: Varsity and Novice divisions with a max. of 4 per event division (Novice=4; Varsity=4) in speech and LD. Congress entry limit is 7 per division. No “B” teams will be accepted because of space.


Judges: Please bring 1 judge for every 5 entries or fraction (6 entries=2 judges). The head coach is 

expected to judge and be listed as the 1st judge on the entry. 


E-Balloting We will be using online ballots for our tournament. This means several things:

  1. You will need to supply valid email addresses for each of your judges.

  2. Your judges will need to bring a laptop or tablet to use to judge. While smartphones can work, it’s a bit more difficult to write critiques on a phone than the larger devices.

  • Please note the following regarding doublers in Extemp and Broadcasting:

  1. Extempers MUST go to extemp first and then go to their second event.
