Teddy’s Rough Rider

Round Up

October 28, 2022



Hello South Dakota Speech Coaches!


It is my privilege and honor to invite you and your teams to Roosevelt High School’s 9th annual Teddy’s Rough Rider Round Up. We will offer three rounds and a final round. If there are enough entries, there will be novice rounds offered for Serious, Humorous, Duo, Poetry, Storytelling and Non-Original Oratory. Awards will be given to the top four finalists in novice and varsity divisions. If needed, rounds will be combined, but the top novices will still be recognized, so be sure to register your entries as novices or varsity by making that distinction in Tabroom.

Events and Entries


Schools may have an unlimited number of entries in each or our seven (7) Varsity divisions: Humorous Interp, Storytelling, Duo Interp, Serious Interp, Non-Original Oratory, Poetry, and Reader’s Theatre.


       Students may be entered in no more than two events, unless the third event is Reader’s Theatre.

       We will tighten the schedule as entries and time allows.

       South Dakota High School Activity Association rules will govern this contest.

       Please have your entries in by 7PM on Wednesday, October 26 at http://teddysroundup.tabroom.com/



            Entry fees for the contest will be $6. per contestant per individual event, $12 per duo entry and $18 per Reader’s Theatre entry. Fees will be assessed based on the entries received by 7pm on Wednesday, October 26th. Fees must be paid on or before registration, and checks can be made out to Roosevelt High School Oral Interp.



            Each school must provide one judge for every five entries or fraction thereof. All schools will be required to supply at least one judge, which may mean coaches will be required to judge. A very limited number of judges may be hired on a first come, first serve basis.




There will be a 30 minute dinner break. Please plan accordingly. A concession stand will be provided for your convenience.
