Dear Speech Coach,
 
Moline High School invites you to join us in the later end of the season for our annual MHS Winter Tournament on January 25, 2020. We took a break from hosting while our performing arts departments got a facelift, but now we are excited to bring this tournament back from hiatus, so please come and partake in the festivities. We are continuing where we left off and invite your teams to helps us give the new auditorium a proper speech-centered house warming by having a tournament (complete with a hospitality room run by our wonderful drama booster parents!).  Hope to see you all on the 17th!

ENTRY:  A maximum of 3 entries per event. Please contact me if your team wishes to compete with more than that.  Please register online using SpeechWire.
