Individual trophies will be going to the top 3 in each category, ribbons to 4-6 and one and two out.  We will be giving away team trophies to the top 4 teams. 
We will be drawing online for Rounds 1 & 2.  Please have your students repeat one of those selections for Round 3. We will be drawing from the first 10 stories in both Extemporaneous Reading and Storytelling.
Since this is going to the first tournament of the season for most of us, tasks will be sent out via email to coaches on Monday, January 29th. Please distribute them to your students to help facilitate the discussions.
Concessions will be available for students.  Breakfast and a light lunch will be provided for coaches and judges in the Judge’s Lounge.
All students and judges will need a live.speechwire.com account. Please set that up before the tournament. Have everyone log in to their account to verify that their account works.  If you have any questions please let us know.
Speechwire is making a huge push towards online ballots/critiques.  We are going to offer both online and paper ballots/critiques at this tournament.  Please let us know if any of your judges want to use a paper ballot.  If using online ballots, please make sure all critiques are entered before the end of the tournament.
Buses can be unloaded on either the south side of the school (off of Clary St.) or in the student parking lot on the north side of the school (off of Marine Ave.).  Buses can park in the back of the student parking lot.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at brandon.caster@isd518.net or call me:
