Welcome to the 2013 District Individual Speech Tournament!

Welcome to George-Little Rock and the 2013 Northwest Iowa District Individual Speech Contest.  

We hope the day is a pleasant one for you.  In case of bad weather (bite your tongue), listen to KIWA (Sheldon).  I will also attempt to text or email all coaches.  

Contest headquarters will be in the high school office. Ballots will be available after all your entries are posted.  If you want them mailed, please provide a stamped self-addressed envelop.  

Remember that all special requests need to go through the State Office.  

We are planning a trip to Washington, DC and New York, NY in June, so the Broadway Bound group is sponsoring the concession stand.  Pulled pork sandwiches, pizza, homemade egg burritos, homemade treats, and so much more is on the menu.  There isn't much for food choices in George (Pizza Ranch will be coming to the tournament anyway), so please encourage your students and parents to eat at our concession stand.  

There will be a $3.00 suggested donation to help offset the costs of hosting the district tournament.  

Remember no video or recording information allowed except by special request from the state office.

We're a small school, so noise could be an issue.  Please remind your students and spectators about contest courtesy.  Be quiet in the hallways and respect other contestants and school property.  Some centers are close in proximity.  

Coaches remember to have your critique forms filled out properly, and any substitution cards need to have the appropriate signatures.  Additional judging forms will be available for $.25 a copy.
