Danville Anchor Invitational for Middle Schools
2016 — KY/US
Dear Middle School Speech Coaches:
Danville High School is proud to invite you to its annual middle school speech tournament, the Anchor Invitational, on January 16, 2016. We pledge to do our very best to provide a fun and competitive day for you and your students that runs on or ahead of schedule.
All middle school KHSSL events will be offered.
You may enter as many students per event as you like; the best three competitors from your team in each event will count toward team sweepstakes. Each student may enter up to three events. If possible, your students will be coded against each other in preliminary rounds and will not meet. Each entry will be charged $5.00. Duo Acting and Duo Improv will be charged $10.00.

Trophies will be awarded to first through sixth places in all categories as well as in sweepstakes. And yes, coaches, we will have the marble clocks for the team awards.
You must provide one judge for every six entries or fraction thereof; 7 entries = 2 judges, etc. Remember, Duo Acting and Improv Duo count as one entry in judges needed and as two entries in fees to pay ($5 per kid = $10 per duo entry). You may hire judges you do not provide for $30 apiece. Your judges should be familiar with the KHSSL rules and ballots. We promise them lots of goodies and coffee.
