Entries

Schools may enter up to five students per event. Students may enter a maximum of two events per bracket, for a total of six events. Competing in two duos equals two events. In order for school judges to be used, teams with larger entries may have students “doubled up” in rounds in order to facilitate the use of all judges.

 

Deadline for Entries

Entries must be received to Speechwire by NOON, Tuesday, February 13th.  A $5 nuisance fee will be added to any changes after this time. An email confirmation will be sent by Tuesday night.

 

Fees

Parking

The tournament will be held in Hibbard Hall and there is parking available in the lot next to the building. A campus map is available here: http://www.uwec.edu/about/maps-directions/

 

Judge Note

As we must rely heavily on hired judges, it is important to bring as many qualified judges as possible, especially those who are impartial to your own team and may be hired as clean judges. If you know of any impartial judges who are available, we would be happy to hire them at $10 a round. The Judges Lounge will be Hibbard Hall 177.
