This is a High School tournament in Minnesota.
Hello Speech Colleagues!
You may enter as many students as you wish in any category. You may make any changes to your registration up until noon on Friday, March 18. You may still make drops after that deadline, but you will be responsible for your entry fees at that time, regardless of drops between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.
Checks should be sent to: Roseville Speech | Attn: Jodi Kyllonen | 1240 Co Rd B2 West | Roseville MN 55113
Check in will take place between 7:15 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. You are encouraged to make changes online or text or call ahead -- 651-261-1582 -- with any last minute drops that morning. This will speed up our site scheduling process that morning. RAHS has two entrances and parking lots. Please use the lower lot (gym entrance). Registration will take place outside the cafeteria, up the stairs from the North Gym Lobby. Your team's home base will be in the North Gym.
We will post schedules outside the cafeteria, in the North Gym lobby and in the judges' lounge. Critique sheets and maps will be available in your team's registration packets. A variety of concessions will be available throughout the day in our cafeteria. We will have hot coffee all day and lots of food, including breakfast and lunch, throughout the day for our judges and coaches.
You will need one judge for every 6 entries or fraction thereof. All judges are expected to be available through final rounds.
We schedule the judges based on the number of students you originally register; we cannot make accommodations Saturday morning because of drops.
Please indicate any of your judges who are unaffiliated with your school or students in any way – we encourage you to bring as many unaffiliated judges as you are able.
Both MSHSL and NSDA rules will be honored. Please make sure your judges are aware of this.
We are NOT offering POI (since Nat Quals will be over by this time and POI is not a MSHSL category).
Since this is a NIETOC bid tournament, students with prose or poetry pieces can be entered in Dramatic Interpretation.
Discussion tasks will be brought to the round by each judge. Discussion tasks will be taken from each section of the outline.
We will provide screens for projectors in all Informative Rooms.
ALL DRAWS: Each of the three draw events will draw fresh for each round, including all three prelims and finals.
Storytelling: Stories will be taken from the entire list.
Extemp Reading: Stories and poems will be taken from the entire lists.
Extemp Speaking: There will be separate topic areas for each round. Topics will be posted in the draw area.
Laptops are allowed in our Extemp Speaking prep/draw area. Students will not be allowed to connect to the internet but may have files stored on laptops, external hard drives and USB drives. We cannot guarantee access to electric outlets, so plan to run on battery power. Any computer malfunction is the competitor's responsibility and prep will not be extended for computer problems.
