Dear Speech Coaches,


When we do not see opportunities, we create them. For that reason, it is my pleasure to extend an invitation to your team for the first annual 2023 Maxwell Wildcat Middle School Speech Tournament to be held on Saturday, April 22nd. 


Many schools in Western Nebraska do not have Middle School Teams. This is an excellent opportunity to begin building a program that will offer younger students experiences to grow before they even enter high school!


Middle school speech is a lawless activity right now! Especially in Western Nebraska. There are few guidelines. My tournament will be run similarly to a high school tournament. Maximum times for each event will not be changed. Minimum times will be eliminated. The goal is to give these kids an opportunity to practice speaking and competing. 


At Maxwell, we competed last year with four interested students at a single competition. Now, we are hosting one, with eleven competitors. I believe the interest is there! Kids love competing and we can offer them one more way! Several schools have already expressed interest and I would love to have you join us!


We will run nine of the ten NSAA events. The only event change will be Extemp. We will *not* have Extemp at the tournament, instead we will run Impromptu. 


Registration for the tournament will begin at 8:15 a.m. All events will run concurrently.

9:00 a.m.  Round 1

10:30 a.m. Round 2

12:00 p.m. Round 3

2:00 p.m. Awards


This will be three rounds, no finals event. Students may triple enter at their own discretion. The top six in each category will be awarded. 


Entry Fees will be $5.00 for each entry, individual or group.  Please try to provide a judge for each of six entries or part thereof. If you are unable to do so, there will be a $50 fee per judge expense.


You may have many (hopefully) questions. Feel free to contact the Maxwell Activities Director or myself if you have any questions.
