Dear Forensics Coach,

Our goal is to reach schools in a variety of regions throughout the state. We are prepared to offer a professionally-run, fun and exciting day of competition.

Each school must provide one judge for every five entries or portion of five entries. Each duo, group interp or play acting is considered one entry. Please try to bring your own quality judges. Your judge commitment will be based on your entry as of Friday (the day prior to the tournament) at 4pm. We will have hired judges available for you at a cost of $20 per uncovered entry. Teams with over 50 entries/10 judges may be required to hire judges from the tournament.
Trophies will be presented to the top three competitors and medals to the remaining finalists. In addition, the top novice competitor in each category will receive a medal. Team trophies will be awarded to schools in three divisions. Your top 25 competitors with a maximum of four in any one category will count for team awards. Divisions will be determined based on actual entries competing. A minimum of five entries will be needed to compete for team awards. NEW THIS YEAR: We will also recognize students who advance to the highest number of power rounds between the Sun Prairie West and Sun Prairie East tournaments this year at the awards ceremony for the Sun Prairie East tournament.  Next-in final rounds, novice finals, and any category with too few competitors to advance to the final round will be considered a power round. 
-Please register (click attending or not attending) via SpeechWire one week before the tournament.
-Teams can and should manage their own drops on Speechwire.com until 4:00pm, Friday (the day prior to the tournament). 
-Entries dropped after that time will still be charged and you will be responsible for the judges listed.
-Day of tournament drops are strongly discouraged. Please text last minute drops as soon as possible on tournament day to Anna-Lisa Dahlgren at 608-712-5152 AND Jason Samens at 608-669-3210. Make sure you have an updated cell phone number in Speechwire, so tournament personnel can contact you in case a member of your team fails to check-in by 8:15am.  
A fee of $10.00 for each individual entry and $15.00 for group entries (Duo, Group Interp, Play Acting). Entry fees are per entry, not per student. Fees will be based on your confirmed entry.
The Sun Prairie Forensics Boosters will have breakfast and lunch for sale. Judges will be provided a food voucher for breakfast and lunch.  In addition, we are offering an option for schools to purchase concessions vouchers for students. This fee can be added to your team's speechwire account invoice if this is preferable for your team/school.  
-Note on Varsity/Novice designation: When prompted to enter a student’s division, please use varsity for all competitors EXCEPT those students in their FIRST year of high school forensics competition. Please mark these students as NOVICE. This will allow us to recognize top novice competitors at awards like we have in the past.
-If you encounter any problems with the online registration, don't hesitate to email amdahlg@sunprairieschools.org
We are looking forward to hosting you! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
