Broadcasters will submit KHSSL Round 2 performances 


Please note that all performances must include a complete view of the performer with the exception of broadcasting. 

If a student is reading their speech or script on their video screens in any event other than Broadcasting, they risk being dropped in rank or disqualification. Broadcasting is the only event where students are permitted to read from a phone, laptop, or video screen.

Each student can participate in up to 12 events. 


All video submissions are due by 6 PM EST on Monday, November 29 
The same student video will be used for all rounds including finals. All Duo Acting & Improvisational Duos will be split-screen. 


Please check video upload links to make sure they are working properly after they have been uploaded to tabroom. Be careful using google to create videos- some judges do not have google accounts. YouTube links seem to work the best. 


Plaques will be awarded for Team Sweepstakes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. 

Students will receive trophies for 1st - 6th place in each category 

Our goal is to have the awards ceremony at 6:00 on Saturday
