All students and judges will need a live.speechwire.com account. Please set that up before the tournament. Have everyone log in to their account to verify that their account works.  If you have any questions please let us know.

 

JUDGING:

Speechwire is making a huge push towards online ballots/critiques.  We are going to offer both online and paper ballots/critiques at this tournament.  Please let us know if any of your judges want to use a paper ballot.  If using online ballots, please make sure all critiques are entered before the end of the tournament.
