The Holiday Havoc

2023 — Nampa, ID/US


Hosted by Columbia High School

We are excited to host you at Columbia High School on December 2nd for the 2023 Holiday Havoc Invitational. We are offering a one-day speech tournament and we will offer all 14 IHSAA speech events in both Novice and Varsity divisions (and will only collapse divisions if few entries warrant it). We will still recognize top novices if divisions collapse.

For information regarding the IHSAA Rules and Regulations that we follow for this tournament, please see the website at under the "activities" tab. Panel topics will be posted once they are available. We will use the NFHS extemp topics from September, October, and November.

A Events: Duo, Extemp, Inform, Panel, POI, Radio, and Retold

B Events: ADS, CA, DI, HI, Impromptu, Oratory, Sales
