General Information: The Moorhead Speech Team hopes you will join us in January for a fun, competitive, collaborative, and exciting two-day tournament. Our goal is to provide you with an excellent experience and in a way that reminds us all why we love this activity.

CHANGE OF PLANS! In an effort to keep our NIETOC numbers strong, we will be keeping our novices and varsity divisions merged. Instead of offering a novice tournament on Friday, we ask that the novices join with the varsity in rounds on Saturday. In addition, we will award trophies to the top novice in every category.
