Some reminders about Region Tournaments
(taken from the 2023-24 UHSAA Handbook on Speech and Debate)

  • Students must participate at the region tournament to qualify for State.
  • All participants must meet UHSAA eligibility requirements.
  • Results should be published to coaches after each round but should not be made public until the tournament is completed. It is unethical for coaches or anyone else to divulge the results of a round before the tournament is completed
  • The region tournament is to follow exclusively the rules for each event, including the timing and eligibility of all materials to be used in speech areas.

To Qualify for State:

  • The top 10 in each event at region qualify to state, or 50% of the field in that event, whichever is greater.
  • All schools in the region shall be rank ordered based upon sweepstakes points at the region tournament. The top 50 percent will qualify a full slate. Regions with an uneven number should round up to determine the top 50 percent.
