Dear Forensics Coach,


The Sun Prairie High School Forensics team invites you and your team to the eighth annual Sun Prairie Forensics Tournament. The tournament is scheduled for Saturday, February 6, 2016. 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.


Special Notes!

-The tournament will be held at Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School this year. (This is the former Sun Prairie High School.)

-To help save your budgets, the judge to entries ratio is 1:6 instead of 1:5. (more below)



WFCA rules will be used for all events (For a list of rules see www.wfcaforensics.org) with the following modifications:

-Allowance of one 4x6 notecard in Oratory.

-Solo acting and OIL are a maximum of 10 minutes, but 8-minute performances will not be penalized.

-Solo Actors will be allowed to use a chair.

Each school must provide one judge for every six entries or portion of six 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 Thursday, February 4. We will have hired judges available for you at a cost of $15 per uncovered entry. Teams with over 60 entries/10 judges are 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.



-Please register via SpeechWire by Friday, January 29th by 5:00 pm.

-Teams can and should manage their own drops on Speechwire.com until 4:00pm, Friday, February 5th.

-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 call-in or text last minute drops as soon as possible on tournament day to Elliott Fischer at 608-609-0290. 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 $9.00 for each individual entry and $18 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 SPHS Forensics Boosters will have breakfast and lunch for sale.



-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 fischere@uwosh.edu or jcpesch@sunprairieschools.org


We are looking forward to hosting you on February 6th! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
