SMART Academy Invitational 
 
Dear coach, 
 
You are cordially invited to the SMART Academy Invitational at Strive Prep – SMART Academy on December 15, 2018. This is our third year hosting a tournament and we are very excited for many of you to join us again for a day of competition.  
 
Events: We will be offering three rounds and finals in DI, HI, Poetry, Duo, POI, DX, IX, Original Oratory, Informative, Impromptu, CX, LD, and Public Forum. We will also offer Congress. 
 
Doubling: Debaters may not enter more than one event. Speech competitors may enter 2 events PER FLIGHT (4 events total). Extempers may not double enter in the extemp flight. Extempers risk losing prep time if they double enter in the opposite flight.
 
Flight A:
Oratory 
POI
Impromptu 
Informative
Duo
Public Forum 
 
Flight B: 
IX
DX
HI
DI
Poetry 
LD
CX
 
Fees and Payment: The entry fee will be $10.00 per student in speech events. $10 per LD entry. And $20 per CX, PF, and Duo team. Congress is $8 an entry. 
 
Please make checks payable to “Strive Prep Smart” IMPORTANT: Please send checks to 3201 W. Arizona Ave “ATTN: SMART/GRANT THOMAS”. This will help keep checks from floating around and mystery money remaining in your account. 
 
Judging: Tournaments need judges. Due to the backgrounds of our families we cannot turn to our families to provide as many judges as other schools. Each school is required to bring one judge for every 7 entries (Speech or Debate). Schools that do not meet their judging requirement will be assessed a $25 fee per missing judge. However, no school is asked to bring more than 4 judges. So if you bring more than 28 total entries, you don’t need to bring more judges. Head coaches count towards a school’s judging requirements.
 
And of course, we will pay every judge (including the judges you bring) $10 a round. 
 
“The Academy Award”: We will be recognizing “The Academy Award for Best Speaker” to the speech student who performs the best that day based off the number of times they appear in finals and how they place within said finals. “The Academy Award for Best Debater” will go to the debater from any of the three debate events with the highest speaker points. 
 
Site:  The tournament will be held at Strive Prep SMART Academy High School, 3201 W Arizona Ave, Denver, CO 80219. Please park in the parking lot on the west side of the school (along Irving street).

Hosting this tournament is a tremendous source of pride for my students, my colleagues, and our community. Additionally, this tournament would not be possible without the work of so many in the speech and debate community. Your attendance and contributions to this tournament are truly appreciated. 
 
Best,
Grant Thomas
