Dear Fellow Central Nebraska Speech Coaches,


Welcome to the beginning of a brand new season!! I am sure that all of you are in the midst of a busy, yet successful school year!                                                                                        

To begin, the two dates set for this year's tournaments are Saturday, January 16th, 2021 and Saturday, January 30th, 2021Both meets will be held at online with live videos.

It is our hope as an organization that we can come together to provide a wonderful and fair competition as well as quality learning experiences among many schools of many sizes in our area. In our efforts to keep this as affordable as possible, our membership fees for this year will be $125 per school, with no discounts for spring meeting. This fee allows you to enter one or both meets with an unlimited number of entries.

You need to provide one judge for every six entries or pay $75 per judge for the entries not covered. Please be responsible to bring well educated and knowledgeable judges. We all want our kids to come away with ballots full of quality praises and critiques.  

When preparing to register, please note that all entries will be done through the website <> under the CNFL link. Registration for each meet is due the Sunday before the meet. If a school registers from Monday through Wednesday before the tournament, they will be assigned a $100 late fee. No registrations will be allowed after Wednesday.

Students may enter up to three events per tournament. There will be novice and varsity division of competition. Novice means that this is the student's first year competing in speech. If a student has competed in ANY event in a previous year, this student is expected to compete as varsity. Tournament format will be 3 rounds and no finals. The top ten entries will receive medals in novice competition. The top 15 entries in varsity individual events will receive medals. In novice and varsity the top 10 group event entries will receive medals.

Finally, Coaches, we recognize that there are many coaching changes this year. If you notice that someone is not on the list, or know someone that is interested in attending our contests, PLEASE forward it on to them or let me know so that I can forward it on to them! 

Thank you so much for your time, and thank you for all you do for students. Please see below (and the attachment!) for specific directions on joining CNFL. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or need assistance.
