 JUDGING: Judging needs are listed above. Radio Speaking judges will need to time their own rounds, so be sure to bring your own stopwatches. All judges must wait for all finals’ assignments to be posted before leaving. Even if there are drops, you are still required to provide the judges from the original confirmed entry.

PREP EVENTS:  Please note and remind the students that Extemp will prep *twice* for the prelims and once again for finals. Radio will prep once for prelims and once for finals.

FINAL ROUNDS: Speaker points will not be used. Fewer than 6 may be advanced to keep the final round below nine participants. Ties in final rounds will not be broken. Team trophies will be awarded to the top 3 teams in the sweepstakes.

Confirmation of Final Numbers: Wednesday, January 11th by 5 p.m., please confirm final numbers in each event in Speechwire. NO ENTRIES WILL BE ADDED AFTER THIS TIME. We will send registration confirmation on Thursday, January 12th. After Thursday's confirmation, rounds will NOT be balanced because of drops. JUDGING NUMBERS WILL NOT BE AFFECTED BY DROPS MADE AFTER THIS TIME.  After Thursday, you are still required to bring the number of judges from original confirmation.

Tab Room: TAB room is run by invitation only. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.


We look forward to seeing you on January 14th!
