Event Description:

This is a mixed division of students who have constructed a program of prose, poetry and/or drama using at least two out of the three genres. The time limit for this interpretation event is 10 minutes with a 30 second “grace period.” If the judge finds that the student has gone beyond the grace, the student may not be ranked 1st, but need not be ranked last based on time. Selections used in this contest must meet the publication rules established by the NSDA. It is the affirmative duty of each coach and each student entered in Interpretation contests to determine absolutely that the cutting being preformed meets all rules for material; if requested by the tournament director, coaches and/or students must provide a manuscript of the cutting used with words being used highlighted or underlined and any word changes for transition or profane language indicated clearly in ink. The same selection used in the first round of competition in any interpretation event must be used throughout the entirety of the tournament in that event.
