Prelim Recordings: 

Prelim Recordings will be due by Monday, February 15, 2021 at 5:30 PM.  This will be a hard deadline as we will begin opening prelim judging rounds on Tuesday morning 2/16/20.

 Duo Interp

Guidelines for Duo Interp will be as follows. Students will not be required to perform split screen.  If students choose to pre-record split screen and compete as such during live, they will be judged accordingly based on the merits of their performance.  As such, we do however ask they schools practice safety standards in regards to regulation with students who choose to perform in the same space.

 Judges Training

We will strive for each judge to be highly qualified in the tournament.  In such if a judge is not a coach.  We ask that they complete the judges training per the instructions listed on the main page.  Once you have completed please email the appropriate certificate to HarBerspeakerseries@gmail.com.  This training also includes diversity and inclusion training.  Any judge who is not a coach that is listed will not be allowed to judge.
