Dear Colleagues,
Titan Talkers would like to invite your team to our Souper Bowl speech invitational on Saturday, DECEMBER 7th at Norris High School.  We will offer eight individual speech events & duo with optional scripts.  Two preliminary rounds and finals are planned.  If any event has very few entries, we will make adjustments to the schedule as needed.  Competitors may triple enter but may not use the same script or parts of the same script in more than one event.  Judges will be instructed to wait only until 10 minutes prior to the next round’s scheduled start time, so extempers may lose prep time if they chose to double enter. We will offer a novice award in each individual event; we'll have you identify novices at registration.  A novice is defined as a student who has not competed in speech prior to August 2019.  Novice recognition will not be made in duo. Team platters will be presented to the top two teams with awards to the top six in every individual event as well as a novice award in each individual event.
Events:
EXTEMPORANEOUS-Current events topics since August 2019.  Thirty-minute preparation, seven-minute maximum speaking time, no minimum limit.  One note card is optional.  ELECTRONIC FILES ARE ALLOWED AS PER NSAA RULES.
ORATORY-An original speech composed by the speaker intended to persuade, convince, or inspire.  Ten-minute maximum time limit.  Performance script is optional but must be available at judge and/or tournament director requests.
INFORMATIVE-An original speech composed by the speaker intended to inform or explain.  Ten minute maximum.  One 4 x 6 note card optional.  Visual aids are allowed.
ENTERTAINMENT-An original speech composed by the speaker.  This is a public address event.  The purpose is to entertain, but the speech must have a serious point.   Eight minutes maximum time limit.  One 4 x 6  notecard optional.
HUMOROUS & DRAMATIC INTERPRETATION-These will be separate events in interpretation which may be taken from prose or drama.  Ten-minute maximum time limit.  Manuscripts are optional.
