Dear Fellow Speech Coaches!

You are invited to the annual Sauk Rapids-Rice High School Speech Tournament, SPEECH MADNESS on Saturday, March 7, 2020.   

We will be hosting all 13 MSHSL events.  Back this year is our ‘just for fun’ Improv-Duo category.  In this category will once again give Duo contestants a famous character and motivation to improve.  More details will be coming soon. Feel free to send an email with any additional questions you have about the event.


For the truly ambitious, TRIPLE entering is allowed (your third category needs to be Duo Improv)




  • DISCUSSION: Double entry only.


  • NO DOUBLE DRAW CATEGORY ENTRIES exception is the Inprov-Duo-Acting. (You can only be entered in one of ER, ES or Storytelling) Your Speaking time will not be moved! 

There will be three preliminary rounds of competition, and Finals in all categories.  

We will offer awards to all 8 Finalists.

Next-In Finals if over 30 in any category except Impov-Duo. (Ribbons to Next-In Finals)

Team sweepstakes trophies will be awarded; 3 Large schools,3 Middle size school, and 3 Small size school.

In addition to the regular team awards, we will also award our Quality Award -- which will honor the team with the most strength relative to size. This award is calculated by dividing total points by the total number of entries.  We look forward to honoring our Minnesota Speech Community!
