Lakeville South Cougar Invitational

Saturday, February 8th, 2019 at Lakeville South High School

Dear Speech Coach,
You and your students are cordially invited to participate in the Lakeville South Cougar Invitational Speech Tournament on Saturday, February 8th, 2019 at Lakeville South High School. We are very excited to offer a fun, competitive day of speech.  We will offer all 13 MSHSL events, as well as Program Oral Interp (POI) (we are not offering Impromptu this year). As it is early in the season, we will be offering both varsity and novice finals, except for POI, which will only be varsity. Team awards will also be given. 
Format: Three rounds with finals
All students (varsity and novice) will compete together as one in the tournament.  Novice participants are eligible for varsity finals, but also for novice finals, which will be determined similarly to honors finals. There will be no honors finals, but honorable mentions will be awarded.
Registration: No limit on the number of categories per entry, but registration will close at 500; double entries are permitted, excluding double-entering in two draw-categories. Registration and details are available at www.speechwire.com. The deadline to register for the tournament, as well as adds and drops, is Wednesday, February 5th, at 5 p.m. After that, any adds/drops will result in a fee. Please email drops and adds after that to weir1887@isd194.org, as we will try to accommodate all adds.
Cost: $7.00 per entry (duo is $14).  Costs are final on Wednesday, February 5th at 5:00pm. Checks made payable to Lakeville South High School Speech. Please either pay in advance by mailing a check (see address below) or having a check at registration.  Your cooperation is appreciated.
Judges: One judge for every six entries or fraction thereof. Uncovered judging positions will carry a $75 fee.
Food: Concessions will be available in the Commons area throughout the day. Food will be provided for coaches and judges in the lounge.
Draw Categories:
Extemp. Reading Prose: Students will draw from all stories in One 1934, and Three June 1940; and the first half of Five January 1941, to Letter to Marie-Laure pg. 258 (students cannot repeat a story from their preliminary rounds in finals)
