Coaches queridos,                                                                                                                 

We are extremely excited to invite you to our annual Wheeling High School Tournament! It is our "Welcome to the Jungle" warm up tournament to welcome brand-new novices and JV competitors to this thing we call Speech. Please note that registration does not begin until EIGHT (8)am!

DATE:                        Saturday, November 4th, 2017

Schedule:  We start late & end early! Each student will speak 3 times (single-judged rounds only) and there will NOT be finals.  Awards will ideally begin around 130pm. We've started even sooner.



Teams are invited to enter up to 3 entries in each event.  Since it is early in the season, we are inviting novice and JV speakers to participate (students will compete in combined rounds).  Students can be single or double entered ONLY.  If a triple entered student is discovered at any point, he/she will be disqualified FROM THE TOURNAMENT (not just one event). Also, be cool~ this is designed to welcome novice newbies and second year JV, so no third/fourth year kids. Unless they're terrible and this is legit their only chance for a medal.


Individual awards will be a massive debacle based on the fact that there are not finals... it should be a lovely opportunity for lots of people to take home some hardware and go home happy! :) Team awards are based on each team's top 1 competitor per event. 



To help new Extempers, we will have Extemp prep ONCE and use the speech each round. Radio speakers should come with a prepared script, including commercial, no more than 24 hours old.  We will follow IHSA rules on all other events.  With the exception of Radio, there will be NO penalties for time unless it is extreme & affects the quality of the piece; please emphasize this to your judges, too! :) 


Entry fees and judges:  Make checks payable to Wheeling High School Speech Team. To accomodate smaller teams, we have created a variety of fee/judge requirements:

1-5 entries                                                 $75                   Bring 1 judge

6-14 entries                                               $125                  Bring 2 judges

15-28 entries                                             $175                  Bring 3 judges up to 21, or 4 judges for 22-28 students

29-42 entries                                             $225                  Bring 5 judges up to 35, or 6 judges for 36+

  •  It breaks down to 1 judge per 7 entries. If you cannot provide the required number of judges, $120 per judge will be added to your entry fee. 

We are aware that we are one of the only tournaments scheduled for this weekend; in order to accommodate a greater number of schools, we will be FIRM in limiting entries per school to 3 entries per event. Registration will be open until, October 22nd. After that date, your team cost is fixed, regardless of later drops.


We are looking forward to seeing you! If you have any questions, please email me at jessica.macieje@d214.org, which I prefer and will get to more quickly. You can also try me at school 847-718-4531 or on my cell at (847) 347-4388. 


Most Enthusiastically,

Jessica Maciejewski, WHS
