2020 MILLARD WEST WINTER WONDERLAND
 
Dear Forensics Colleague,
The Millard West Forensics Team cordially invites you to attend the 20th Annual Winter Wonderland Speech Tournament to be held on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020. Due to the success of using online ballots last year, we are going to try to run 3 pre-set prelim rounds and finals. This will actually put less strain on judging assignments and hopefully allow for more rounds off for judges
