Students CANNOT double enter between patterns, but may double enter within the same pattern. 

Students may enter in two events only if they are within the same pattern. If we are oversubscribed we will implement the league waitlist process. In order to make sure we have enough rooms in each campus, we need to set the deadline date earlier. Please enter your students and judges as soon as possible, and no later than Tuesday, November 12th at 5:00pm!

Please provide one ADULT judge for every four entries, or fraction thereof in each pattern. This judge quota applies to all rounds, regardless of how many entries advance to semi-finals or finals. Thus, a school with five entries must provide two ADULT judges for all four rounds.

Just a reminder that we have moved to online ballots for speech tournaments so ALL judges must have a Tabroom account and must bring some sort of electronic device (laptop, tablet, etc.) to fill out their ballots.

Judges entered as Pattern A should come to Leland High.  Judges entered as Pattern B should come to Bret Harte Middle School.
