Dear Speech Coach,
 
You and your students are cordially invited to participate in the Lakeville South Cougar Invitational Speech Tournament on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 at Lakeville South High School. We are very excited to offer a fun, competitive day of speech.  We will offer all 13 MSHSL events, as well as Program Oral Interp (POI) and Impromptu. As it is early in the season, we will be offering both varsity and novice finals, except for POI and Impromptu, which will only be varsity. Team awards will also be given. 
 
Format: Three rounds with finals
All students (varsity and novice) will compete together as one in the tournament.  Novice participants are eligible for varsity finals, but also for novice finals, which will be determined similarly to honors finals. There will be no honors finals, but honorable mentions will be awarded.

The deadline to register for the tournament is Wednesday, February 7th, at 5 p.m. Teams that are registered can then still add/drop competitors without penalty until Wednesday, February 7th at 11:00 p.m., when costs become final. Please email drops and adds after that to weir1887@isd194.org, as we will try to accommodate all adds.
