Cozad Holiday Tournament

2022 — Cozad, NE/US

******This tournament is for NEBRASKA schools only. *********



Dear Speech Director:

It is time to start planning to attend the Cozad Holiday Speech Invitational. The start of the season is on the horizon, mark your calendars now for our 2021 tournament. 


This is a great opportunity to start your season early.

The invitational will be held by Cozad High School and Cozad Middle School.

Medals will be awarded for first through sixth in all individual events, first through fifth in group events and ribbons for all Superior rankings. Our format includes 3 rounds and no finals in all events. This will be an “open” meet, which means that all competitors will compete in the same division (no varsity/novice separation). Entry fees are $7.00 per event for individuals and groups.

 Extempers should refrain from triple entering within the same flight due to timing issues.

For this year Duet Acting will be ALLOWED to use a script to help with line memorization.

Judges fees will be $75.00, or one qualified judge for every six entries. We ask that you make every effort to bring enough judges to cover your team’s entries (we prefer judges to dollars anytime). We cannot overemphasize the need for you to cover your entries.

All entries are due Tuesday December 7, 2021 by 5 p.m. 

Drop/Adds will be accepted until 9 a.m. on Friday December 10th and there will be no additions the day of the contest. 

We anticipate this tournament to be a productive start to a great speech season. Please join us in December for the Cozad Holiday Speech Invitational. We wish you and your team success in the season ahead.

In an effort to reduce the contraction of the cooties, masks are not required but encouraged
