ENTRY INFO Each school may enter up to two contestants in each event. Sorry, no extras--no exceptions. Entry fee is $150, regardless of the number of entries. Make checks payable to Reavis High School. You must pay before your kids perform! Please submit 10 topics for Extemp and Impromptu with your entry reservation.

TOP NOVICE Please specify whether each competitor is at the Novice or Varsity level. We will be awarding a TOP NOVICE medal to the best novice competitor in each event outside of the top six.

JUDGES You will need to bring 4 judges or one for every six contestants entered. Sorry, we have no extra judges. We want to keep the rounds as small as possible so PLEASE bring the required number of judges. The number of judges will be based upon your original entry form.

RULES Radio will need to bring a prepared script, no more than twenty-four hours old.  Over or under time will result in being ranked last.  No other time penalties will apply.  Impromptu will follow IHSA Guidelines.  Extemp will prep once and speak twice using same speech. Judges will keep time for themselves in radio, extemp, and impromptu.  Please provide your own stopwatches. AWARDS Medals will be awarded to the top six finishers in each event, and we will not break ties. As always, we will reward the “next-out” taffy apples.  The top three teams will receive trophies.

LUNCH Reavis Drama Parents will be selling full concessions for light breakfast and full lunch.  Please plan on supporting our school by not bringing in outside food.

CONFIRMATION We will keep Speechwire Registration open until 8:00 pm on Friday, November 16th. Please make sure your entries and names are as up to date as possible. Any drops after that time, please call/text Kate Szczudlo at the number listed below.
