Hello Coaches, Competitors, and Judges!
We have reached our final OATS of the season. Ugh, I could cry! This has been a fantastic year again, and we are glad to spend one more OATS with you. 
As you've seen, the OATS fee is $200 for the 22-23 season (which pays for all remaining OATS slots that are covered). We will maintain a $10/uncovered slot fee, and we will continue the fee waivers for student-run teams or those experiencing financial hardship. Look for a financial report from the 2021-22 season coming soon on the Outspoken Culture website. 
The dates for video submission for the OATS include:
Mon, Feb 27
We look forward to continuing to support student advocacy, accessibility, and health/wellness this 22-23 Season. Full information is available on the OATS Invite (available on Speechwire and the Outspoken Culture website at http://outspokenculture.org/oats). If you have questions feel free to contact Julie Walker by phone (call or text 706-844-2773) or email (julie.walker@smsu.edu). 
If you're interested in attending the tournament culminating the incredible performances of the year, check out the Asynchronous Speech Championship invite, available at http://outspokenculture.org/asc!
