Are you ready to rock?  Join us for the annual rocking JV/N tournament at Prospect High School.  Please accept this invitation to attend the Prospect Speechapalooza JV/N Speech Tournament on Saturday, November 11, 2017.  The tournament will be the standard three rounds with NO finals.  We do have a limited number of rooms, so registration will be closed once we reach the limit of students that we can comfortably accommodate.

ENTRY :  You may enter up to three competitors in each event, but may also request extra entries.  Requests for extra entries should be emailed to Jonathon Kaminsky (Jonathon.kamins@d214.org) Extra entries will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis and preference is always extended to those who have allowed extras for our team.  Extra entries will be admitted at additional fees, and teams permitted extra entries will be expected to provide additional judges. If you would like extra entries please request them ASAP.
JUDGES :  Each team should provide one judge for every five entries in the competition.  A full team is expected to have six judges, and teams with additional entries should bring an additional judge following the 1 judge per each 1 to 4 entries ratio.  This is absolutely necessary for the success of the tournament.

FEES :  The entry fee for 1-14 entries is $125. A team entry fee of 15-28 entries (2 per event) is $175.  A team entry fee for 29-42 competitors (3 per event) $200. Additional entries after 42 would result in a total fee of $250

Extemp :  Students will prep for 45 minutes in the Library.  There will be two preps for the preliminary rounds and one prep for finals.  Students may choose either prelim prep for the third round. Please provide 10 topics by November 7, 2017.
Impromptu :  We will be following the IHSA format.  Please provide 10 topics by November 7, 2017.
