Extemp draw will be in the High School Cafeteria at 8:15am. Extemp prep will have 1 hour and internet will be allowed. We will be combining Novice and Varsity contestants, please indicate your novice competitors so they are eligible to earn the top a Novice medal.

Concessions will be available for the students; we will have breakfast items, lunch items, and snacks available during the day. The gym will be separated off so each school will have their own area.

The contestants’ ballots will be available to the coaches at the end of the day after the awards ceremony, coaches may view them during the day in the tab room, however they are not to leave the tab room until after finals.
