Osceola is hosting its 21st Annual Osceola Invitational Speech Meet on Saturday, January 27th. As our invite is early in the season for many teams, we will again have three rounds with no finals to give participants as much experience as possible. We will give individual medals for each event, but no sweepstake awards. We will also give recognition for top novice in each event.


Deadline for Registration is Monday 1/22 at 8:00 PM. Fees are $8 per entry. Schools are required to provide one judge for every six entries. If you are unable to do this you will be charged $70 for each judge left uncovered.


We will be using SpeechWire to tab the meet. You should receive an email with information on how to log on to the tournament.  If you want to individually search for it, it is titled “Osceola Invitational”.  All entries must be submitted through SpeechWire.  The deadline for registration is January 22 at 8:00 PM.  Please submit your entries early and often, and if you have any changes, please email them in as soon as possible (post deadline).  


Registration will occur in the commons area outside of the office starting at 7:45am. The general meeting will be held at 8:15am in the gymnasium. Please text your drops to 402-366-1925 ASAP. Drops recieved after 7:00AM WILL NOT be considered in Round 1 group/room assignments. With no finals, small rounds can really skew results. Please be diligent in reporting your drops.


Extemp prep and speeches will occur at our elementary school. It is located on the same campus approximately a block away from the high school. Depending on availability of rooms, other events may also take place at the elementary school. Please warn your students and judges to bring appropriate winter gear. You may also encourage your bus/van driver to drop materials off at the elementary.
