Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League

Fall Invitational Tournament


November 3rd, 2022


Dear MISL Colleagues:

The Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League, in conjunction with Eastern Michigan University, is excited to extend a very warm invitation to the 2022 Fall M.I.S.L. Tournament on the campus of Eastern Michigan University in the beautiful city of Ypsilanti, Michigan. The tournament will take place in-person on Saturday, December 3rd and will be housed out of Pray-Harold.

While EMU does not require vaccinations or wearing of masks, all participants are encouraged to wear masks at their discretion. Judges will be informed that students may choose to compete with or without a mask at their discretion.

During the tournament lunch break we invite all coaches to attend the MISL Fall Business Meeting. This is a great opportunity to meet with other coaches, learn more about MISL, and connect with a community of support excited to help your team grow and succeed.

The tournament will offer all sanctioned MISL individual events. Entry deadline is Tuesday, November 29th, 2022 by 5:00 pm.  All entries should be made through the tournament registration page at Speechwire.com.

This tournament will be scored and scheduled in accordance with the MISL Bylaws for two-prelim round competitions. Tournament details and the most current MISL Bylaws are available at https://michiganspeech.wordpress.com.

If you have any questions or concerns about the tournament or planning for travel, please reach out at your convenience to Tim Ward at tward12@emich.edu or 850-556-3091

We look forward to seeing you soon!
