Dear Forensics Coaches,

Welcome to Sheboygan North VIRTUAL Tournament for 2023


Sheboygan North would like to invite you to an Asynchronous Tournament the week of March 13-19th.

I figured with the end of the season coming up, spring breaks, solo ensembles. etc.… it would be helpful not have an option to compete without travel.



Please register online at www.speechwire.com.



Since it is the end of the season, with STATE approaching fast, all categories will be contested employing WFCA rules. Rule violations will be addressed by the tournament director.

(For a list of rules see www.wfcaforensics.org).

(The exception is Oratorical Declamation, which will follow NCFL rules.) 


Entry fees are: $8 for individual entries and $10 for entries in Play Acting, Duo and Group Interp. A limited number of hired judges will be available for $100 each.


Students are allowed to double or triple enter. Since virtual, anyone can triple enter (Radio & Extemporaneous Speaking), so students can try new categories they might never do.

There is no limit to how many entries a team may have for the tournament. You will be able to manage your team entries via SpeechWire until Wednesday March 15th.

Unlimited number of entries are allowed in each category.


Videos must be uploaded to YouTube as UNLISTED and the links added with the entry. All videos should be named with student’s LAST NAME ONLY and EVENT: Bestul, Moments.

For OIL (2 videos #1 Poetry &  #2 Prose ) and Storytelling (3 videos - #1 questioning reality, #2 acceptance/inclusion & #3 magic/magical creatures (#4 - speakers choice)), also include whether the video is prose, poetry or the story that they are telling: Bestul, OIL, Poetry. This will make it easier for judges to know which video they are watching while judging. 

Please advise your students that the background, lighting, and sound quality will not be judged; however, they should try to find a quiet place to record. All videos must be done in a single take with no editing, single camera, single microphone. The same video performance will be used for all four rounds.


Materials for Extemporaneous Speaking, Impromptu, and Radio Announcing will be sent out to coaches on the evening of March 9.  
They will also be posted on Speechwire for coaches to download directly.
Students in Impromptu are to record their combined prep and speaking time, as one continuous, unedited video (5 minutes total for Impromptu).  .   
Students in Radio and Extemporaneous Speaking will not need to record their prep time, just the speaking time.
All limited prep competitors will submit only one video which will be judged in all four rounds.

Rule Violations

Please reach out to Michelle Bestul via email (huzzahandhurray@gmail.com) or text (920-629-9138) with any potential rule violations. 

Any preliminary round not started by 6:00pm cst on Saturday will be pushed to a standby judge. The team responsible for the “missed round” will be charged $50 per missed round. 



Each school must provide one competent judge for every five student entries or portion thereof. (For example, a team with 12 entries should provide three judges.) Please choose judges wisely. Regardless of student drops, please provide the number of judges indicated at registration.



The top 3 entries in each category will receive awards.  Team awards will be presented to the top 2 teams in the large team, medium team, and small team divisions.  The breakdown for each division will be determined when registration closes, creating as even a split amongst all teams with 5 or more entries.

A school’s top 25 entires will count towards the team score.


Awards will be mailed to the address on file with Speechwire for each school.

Feel free to contact us if you have questions.

If you have any questions, please email Michelle huzzahandhurray@gmail.com or send a text message with your name and school to (920-629-9138
