TCFL Novice Speech
2022 — Valencia, CA/US
The Tri-County Forensic League
Fall Novice IE Tournament
October 29, 2022
West Ranch HS, 26255 Valencia Blvd, Valencia, CA 91381
Novice Competitor: Students that are competing for the first year in any Individual Events while in high school. If they have competed in any of the 13 events listed below in previous years while in high school, they are no longer a novice in IE's.
A Events: Extemp, OA, Informative, DI, Declamation, Storytelling, SPAR
B Events: Impromptu, OO, OPP, HI, POI, Duo
Except for students doing Extemp, students MAY double enter in either pattern, but their total IE entry is limited to 3 events. This means that a student doing Extemp may not double enter in Pattern A but may double enter in Pattern B. (Not a good idea for novices to do three events because they aren't familiar with the workings of a tournament; use caution if a student wants to triple enter.)

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DON'T SEE YOUR SCHOOL LISTED ON THE ENTRIES PAGE, YOU'RE NOT ENTERED.Because of the differences that exist in human perception, a subjective quality is present in the scoring of Speech and Debate rounds. Even with rules and evaluation criteria for guidance, judges will not evaluate the same performance in an identical manner. While we do everything possible to maintain consistency in scoring, winning results are not guaranteed.
