State Tournament Information 2020

Activity Administration:
 

  • Speech currently has no limitations on Start Date, First Contest Date, or Maximum Number of Contests. We encourage schools to create a schedule that works best for coaches and students. The Speech season can overlap with One Act Play, Music Contests, and winter sports and we encourage coaches/directors work with each other to give kids the opportunity to participate in multiple interests.


 

  • The MSHSL Speech begins at sub-section. Regular season contests and invitationals do not need to meet the same requirements for registered judges or need to follow the MSHSL rules, although encouraged for consistency.

  • Speech students are not bound by Bylaw 111 (Transfer and Residence)

  • Administrators need to verify student eligibility, but currently do not need to fill out the Eligibility Verification Form.


Judging:
 

  • All Sub-Section, Section and State Contests require MSHSL registered judges. For more information on being a judge, click here.


 

  • Current Judging Certification Clinics will be posted on this page under NEWS.


 

  • Having qualified judges is important to the integrity of the contests. It is getting harder and harder to get out of school to judge contests and Spring is such a busy time that sometimes contests need to be scheduled on weekdays. If it helps, we have a letter of support you could give your administration to participate in weekday contests.


Current Rules:
 

  • Current Rules and Policies are posted accessible from this page. See Rules and Policies link below.


 

  • If coaches have any questions regarding rules, selection placement, or other issues they are encouraged to contact Cliff Janke as early as possible.
