LOGANSPORT HIGH SCHOOL is pleased to invite you to attend the Speaking of Love Speech Tournament on Saturday, February 10, 2018. TEAM REGISTRATION: The deadline for the registration form is Tuesday, February 6 by 3:00 pm. Please register on Speechwire. I will send a final confirmation after all entries have been received.



  • Registration begins at 7:00am.
  • Most rounds will run at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00, & FINALS close to 1:00. Some will be flighted to accommodate doublers.


EVENTS: The tournament will offer all IHSFA events: Drama, Humor, Duo, Poetry, Prose, Original Performance, Original Oratory, U.S. Extemp, Int’l Extemp, Impromptu, Broadcasting, Discussion, Informative and Programmed Oral Interp. ** This is also the host site for Heartland and District Congress.


AN OPPORTUNITY FOR BENEVOLENCE: Our team has much to be thankful for and we would like to take the opportunity to share our gratitude. Here’s where you come in: we are asking for your assistance in stocking our local food pantry! Please provide 2 items from our supply list per entry. These items will be distributed to our local mission center and our very own Berry Pantry for students who are in need. If each entry equals two items, just think of the far-reaching impact our speech tournament would have. The team with the most donations will receive our benevolence award!


  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • deodorant


  • peanut butter
  • ramen noodles
  • new plain t-shirts
  • New crew and ankle socks



Teams may enter a maximum of 48 entries with a limit of 6 students in each event. Additional non-sweeps entries will not be accepted. Teams may NOT enter a second non-sweeps team. Tournament will be capped at 400 entries due to classroom availability.


CONTESTANTS may double at their own risk in all events. Rounds will not be re-run if a student misses a round and did not communicate with the judge prior to doubling.

  •    Discussion, Extemp, and Broadcasting MAY double at their own risk.
  •    Duo partners may double in other duo events.
