SPEECH MADNESS at SRRHS Saturday, March 2, 2024

Dear Fellow Speech Coaches!

You are invited to the annual Sauk Rapids-Rice High School Speech Tournament, SPEECH MADNESS on Saturday, March 4, 2023.  

We are gearing up to do an all in-person meet.


Masking is at your discresion.

We will be hosting all 13 MSHSL events.  Back this year is our ‘just for fun’ Improv-Duo category.  In this category will once again give Duo contestants a setting (like an elevator), and each will be given a line they must not look at until they choose to read it. Feel free to send an email with any additional questions you have about the event.


New this year: We have added POI to our competion.


For the truly ambitious, TRIPLE entering is allowed (your third category needs to be Duo Improv (this is because speak time is very flexible))




  • DISCUSSION: Double entry only. You may not be in Disco and any of these catagories ExRead, ExSpeak or Storytelling.  Your Prep and/or Speaking time will not be moved! 


  • NO DOUBLE DRAW CATEGORY ENTRIES exception is the Improv-Duo-Acting. (You can only be entered in one of ER, ES or Storytelling) Your Prep and/or Speaking time will not be moved! 

There will be three preliminary rounds of competition, and Finals in all categories.  

We will offer awards to all 7 Finalists.

Next-In Finals if over 30 in any category except Impov-Duo. (Ribbons to 6 Next-In Finals)


Team sweepstakes AWARDS; 3 Large schools,3 Middle size school, and 3 Small size school. (Right now the plan is trophies for all places.

In addition to the regular team awards, we will also award our Quality Award -- which will honor the team with the most strength relative to size. This award is calculated by dividing total points by the total number of entries.  We look forward to honoring our Minnesota Speech Community!
