Howells-Dodge Consolidated High School
Jaguar Jabber Invitational
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
 
Greetings, speech coaches!  I am pleased to invite your team to the Jaguar Jabber Invitational to be held at Howells-Dodge Consolidated High School located in Howells. 
 
We will be accepting online registrations at SpeechWire. We will be using SpeechWire to facilitate the tournament and all results will be available online on the SpeechWire website. When entering students in duet and OID, please be sure to list full names for all competitors on one line (1 line=1 entry). 
 
The entry deadline will be Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. Feel free to enter the students prior to the deadline and make changes up until the deadline on the 18th. No additions will be allowed after the deadline. 
 
The tournament will feature separate JV and Varsity level competition. A student may be entered as a JV competitor in one event while competing in Varsity in another but please be sure to indicate which division the event should be included.  Within each division, students will compete in two preliminary rounds with the top six individuals/groups advancing into the final round. Medals will be awarded to all finalists. Team sweepstakes will be determined using final round placings only. 
 
Students may be triple entered in the competition. Please make sure your extempers understand that they MUST be on time for extemp. Events will likely be flighted as follows: Flight A: OID, Serious, Informative, and Entertainment; Flight B: Duet, Extemp, Humorous, Poetry, and Persuasive. There are no limits on the number of entries a team may have in any of the events. 
 
Extemp: Extemporaneous materials will be checked prior to the first round of competition. Students may use both traditional print files and electronic files. Students will not be allowed to connect to the internet during extemp preparation; any electronic articles must be downloaded to the competitor’s computer prior to the tournament. The extempers will not be allowed to plug in their laptops due to lack of available outlets. Students may be able to charge laptop computers between rounds.
 
Concessions will be offered in the commons area throughout the tournament.
 
Registration will be held in the commons area, right inside the front doors of the high school. Registration will begin at 7:15 a.m. with the first round beginning at 8:00 a.m. Students will be able to congregate in the gym which is where the awards ceremony will take place. 
 
You will need to provide one judge for every SIX ENTRIES. Uncovered judging slots will be charged $10 per uncovered entry.  Please be sure that your judges have a way to time the presenters and are aware that they need to be available for all final rounds. A hospitality room for all coaches, judges, and bus drivers will be available throughout the day. 
 
Fees are $7.00 per entry, individual or group.  Fees should be paid upon registration on the morning of the tournament if not sooner. There will not be any refunds for drops after the January 18th, 6:00 p.m. deadline.
 
Last Minute Drops: For those last minute drops (night before or morning of), we would appreciate as much advance notice as possible to allow the tournament to run as smoothly as possible. You can either e-mail drops to tsindelar@hdcjags.org or text/call them into 402-750-7697.
