Event Description:

IE events will follow National Catholic Forensic League rules and guidelines with a few exceptions. We will use NCFL requirements for published material in IEs. The grace period will be 30 seconds for all speech events. Any IE participant who exceeds the grace may not receive a rank of 1 in the round; any further penalty will be at the discretion of the judge. A participant may only be penalized for a time violation if the judge has used a precise timing device and notes the penalty on the ballot. IE students competing in the wrong competition room will receive the last place rank in the round they competed in. The other students in the room will have their scores adjusted upwards to correct for the student who went into the wrong room. Speech tabbing will be cumulative throughout the tournament, dropping the lowest prelim score.
