Registration, Adds, and Drops

Students may participate in any of the 13 MSHSL-sanctioned categories. There is no cap on the number of students who can attend and participate. Double entries are allowed in all events; Discussion rounds will start 15 minutes late to accommodate any double entries in that category.


Registration is due in SpeechWire by Wednesday, February 15th at 5:00 pm. Judges will be locked in at that time. Changes can be made to a team’s entry until Saturday, February 18th at 7:00 am. After this time, drops will be allowed but not refunded. Any changes after this time should be communicated to the tournament manager via phone or email.


Please make sure that all of your speakers and judges have a live.speechwire.com account set up and accessible to them prior to Saturday morning.



Draws will be conducted live through SpeechWire. Speakers will draw for Round 1 and Round 2 but will repeat a selection for Round 3. Ranges for cuttings and Discussion sub-points will be sent out closer to the tournament date.



Please bring 1 judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof. Judges should be available for all rounds and for any category assigned. If there are specific conflicts, please communicate them early.


There will be VERY few judges available for hire. If you need to hire one, please let us know ASAP to coordinate. The cost of an uncovered judge is $100.


We will plan to use electronic ballots and critiques at this tournament. If necessary, we will offer paper ballots and critique sheets to judges. Please let us know if any of your judges need to use paper materials. With online ballots, all critiques must be submitted prior to the end of the tournament.



$7.00 per entry, $14.00 per Duo. No Team fees.
