Hello Speech Colleagues!
I would like to offer a warm welcome to you and your team and invite you to the 24th Annual ROSEBOWL Tournament on Saturday, March 18, 2023. This in-person tournament is hosted by Roseville Area High School.
We will be hosting all 13 MSHSL categories plus Program Oral Interpretation (POI) and both MSHSL and NSDA rules will be honored. This tournament also splits Extemp Speaking into a preference for Domestic/US topics and International topics, please be aware to register accordingly. We will allow double entering (including discussion and a non-draw event, but not in discussion and a draw event nor two draw events).  
We will offer 3 preliminary rounds of competition, Honor Finals & Finals in all categories (all students will compete in one division). Depending on the size of the category, additional final rounds may be offered at the same time as Finals & Honor Finals.  I am excited to report that the Rosebowl is a National Individual Events Tournament of Champions (NIETOC) bid tournament! For many of you, this will be one last chance to earn enough bids to qualify for NIETOC! 
I want to make you all aware that we will not be hosting an award ceremony at the Rosebowl. Following the final rounds (approximately 3:45 or soon after), results will be posted on SpeechWire to celebrate the success of all students!
Most of the information you might need can be found on the SpeechWire web-site. If you have any other questions, please contact me at jodi.kyllonen@isd623.org   (651) 261-1582
I look forward to hosting you and your team on March 18 for this tournament experience!
Jodi Kyllonen, Roseville Speech Director


You may enter as many students as you wish in any category. You may make any changes to your registration up until 7:00 am on Saturday, March 18. Please continue to make changes through Saturday morning. Your fees will be final when Round 1 begins.

Entry fees are $7.00 for each entry.

Checks should be mailed to: Roseville Speech | Attn: Jodi Kyllonen | 1240 Co Rd B2 West | Roseville MN 55113



Check in will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.   You will make any registration changes/last minutes drops on SpeechWire.com until 8:00 am on Saturday morning.



You will need one judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof.  All judges are expected to be available through final rounds.

We schedule the judges based on the number of students you originally register; we cannot make accommodations Saturday morning because of drops.

Please indicate any of your judges who are unaffiliated with your school or students in any way – we encourage you to bring as many unaffiliated judges as you are able.

Judges will be assigned their rounds through live.SpeechWire.com. Judges will use e-balloting to report their ranks and critique comments.


Both MSHSL and NSDA rules will be honored. Please make sure your judges are aware of this.

We are offering Program Oral Intepretation (POI).

We are splitting Extemp Speaking into Domestic and International (students cannot be double entered in both), so please register accordingly.

Since this is a NIETOC bid tournament, students with poetry pieces can be entered in Dramatic Interpretation (prose is its own NIETOC bid category now!).

Discussion tasks will be posted on Saturday morning, linked on the tournament live doc.  Discussion tasks will be taken from Section 4- People, subpoints A, B, C, and D.


ALL DRAWS: Each of the three draw events will draw fresh for each round, including all three prelims and finals.   Draws will take place in person, using SpeechWire.

Storytelling: Stories will be taken from the entire 2023 MSHSL list.

Extemp Reading: Stories and poems will be taken from the entire 2023 MSHSL lists.

Extemp Speaking:  Any mix of current events! Be ready for anything!
