Dear Speech Coaches,
Welcome to the UTHS Panther Classic! As we return from the holiday break, we know that most schools are beginning to think about the State Series and their Regionals team. We also know that students may need to brush the cobwebs off their pieces/events after the long break. Join us for a great day of healthy competition that will give students great feedback as we ramp up to February. Last year's tournament was a big success, and we hope more schools will join us in the Quad Cities! 
DATE: Saturday, January 6th, 2024
