Cotter High School LogoWelcome to the registration site of the 2023 Cotter Speech Tournament (March 25, 2023)
Cotter High School (Winona, MN) is excited to host IN PERSON a speech meet on Saturday, March 25, 2023!  
Our tournament will schedule all 13 MSHSL categories and we will also offer Program Oral Interp (POI) and Impromptu (IMP).   Double entries are allowed.  Triple entries are allowed only if the third category is Impromptu (IMP).
We are a NIETOC Nationals Bid Tournament.  This would be for DI, DUO, ES, HI, INF, OO, POI and PRO 
Tournament Format:
There will be three preliminary rounds of competition followed by a Final consisting of students who ranked 1-6 in prelims.  Due to size of tournament, we are anticipating some categories will have a Next-In Final (ranks 7-12).
MSHSL Category special notes:
Extemp. Reading (Prose): All Chapters
Extemp. Reading (Poetry): All Poems
Storytelling: All Stories
Discussion: MSHSL Section Topics, Areas (III and IV)
Discussion Tasks:
We will be distributing Discussion tasks in-round 10 minutes prior to each round.
1 - Total ranks in Prelim or Final rounds
2 - Head-to-Head in prelims (MSHSL State Final style)
3 - Prelim Opponents Average Ranks (OAR)
4 - Reciprocals in this round
Entry Fees:
$6.00 per entry (Duos count as one entry).  Checks are payable to "Cotter Schools", with "Speech Meet" in the memo line.  
Registration Deadline:
Wednesday, March 22, 2023 at 10:00pm.
To help better plan the rooms, please have all preliminary entries in Speechwire by Friday, March 3, 2023 at 10pm.
Judging Requirements:
Teams are required to bring one judge for every six entries. Additional judges will be available to hire for $90.00 if teams cannot meet this requirement. Please contact Amy French as soon as possible if you anticipate you will need to hire a judge.
Make all necessary drops to your registration on Speechwire by Saturday 8am.  Text Bob French (507-450-6884) when your team entries are complete.  Please use this format for the text:  "Good".
There will be team sweepstakes awarded to the large and small school winners.  Individual awards will also be given for the Finalists and Next-In Finalist (if held) in each category.  
We will also be awarding a Quality Team Champion.  To be considered for this award, a school must have a minimum of five category entries (not quantity of students).  Calculations will be based on a school's sum of preliminary round results (1st = 6 pts, 2nd = 5 pts, etc) divided by number of team's entries into the categories.  For example if Hogwarts has 27 entries and score 315 pts, their Quality score would be 315/27 = 11.67.  This is being done to balance the Quality of the speaker vs. the Quantity of the entries brought to a tournament.
Please contact Amy (507-450-2690) or Bob if you have any questions. We look forward to a great tournament!
