Your team is cordially invited to participate in the 16th Annual Eagle Invitational Speech Tournament at Eden Prairie High School on Saturday January 25, 2020.  All 13 MSHSL categories and in addition to Program Oral Interpretation (POI).  We will use MSHSL and NSDA rules for all categories.  All entries (Varsity and Novice) will compete together in the three prelim rounds.  All entries will be sorted at the completion of the third prelim round first by Varsity/Novice, then by ranks.  Varsity will have a final round (1-7) and an "honor final" or "next in" (8-14) and Novice participants will have a final round (1-7).  Please note, Varsity means any participant who participated in the Activity at the high school level in a previous season.  Novice means any participant new to the activity at the high school level, not new to a category (a sophomore switching categories from freshmen year is a Varsity entry).

This Tournament is a NIETOC Bid Tournament.

We will have plenty of food in the judge's lounge for all coaches and judges.  We will provide a concession stand with a variety of options for the participants.
