Rules for Broadcasting:
Broadcasting is a public address event in which a student presents a classic, "top-of-the-hour" news broadcast in the voice of a professional broadcaster. The students will create a prepared news script using recent material. The contestants may find material in AP script (available at local television stations), newspapers, internet sites, etc. Each contestant must compose/prepare his/her own scripts. The 3-minute time limit in the round must be observed (there is a 5-second grace period), with a minimum time length of 2:30. A brief commercial (15 seconds – suggested length) must be included in the broadcast. Contestants must present all of the copy as it appears in the script. An introduction and sign-off are required.
Judges will listen to (not watch) the presentation. Throughout the broadcast, the timekeeper or judge will keep the student informed of the time.
