Munster High School welcomes your team to a rewarding early season opportunity.  The tournament’s purpose is to begin training and mentoring beginners.  Although this is a competition, the emphasis will be on learning. We will run three preliminary rounds with no final round. There will be no team sweeps. Students with 100 points or less are invited to participate in one division. Students with 100+ points are invited to judge the competition.   There will be no physical awards in order to eliminate entry fees. 
Sunday, October 9- recorded youtube links should be posted to speechwire entry by 7:00 PM.
Monday, October 10 - ballots are pushed to judges by 12:00 PM.
We will allow judges to use the week to submit ballots by Thursday, October 13 at 7:00 PM.
