Competitive Speech--2018 DISTRICT SCHEDULE--

--We will not take a Western bus because we have kids coming in from every direction; if you do need a ride, you may gladly ride with Mrs. C. Her vehicle will leave Hull at 7:00 AM. YOU MUST NOTIFY MRS. C. AHEAD OF TIME IF YOU NEED A RIDE TO DISTRICTS! Mrs. C. stays all day, until the last judging sheet is in. You should arrange for your own transportation home, even if you rode to Cherokee with Mrs. C.
--Some school require their kids to take the bus so they can listen to and cheer on the other students from their school. While I don't require you to hang around, I do encourage to cheer on and listen to one another. Listening to other schools' performers is also a great way to learn and grow . . . and to get great material ideas for next year!
--When you are finished with your performance, the judge will likely take a few minutes to visit with you about what you did well, what could be improved. Be courteous. Listen carefully, this is GOOD advice! You will not get your evaluation sheet at that time. All sheets are turned into the office and Mrs. C. gets all of them at the end of the day. You can see your sheet on Monday, Feb 26. If you get a "I," you are automatically registered for STATE SPEECH, which is Saturday, March 10, at Carroll High School, Carroll, Iowa.
--Your score will be posted during scheduled breaks, probably in a gym or cafeteria area. Depending on when you speak during any given session, you could know you score relatively quickly, or it may take over an hour to find out.
Be at your Center, ready to go 30 minutes before your performance time.
Ready to go means . . .
--OFFICIAL JUDGE'S Sheet ready to hand to doorkeeper. (Look over this form
BEFORE you perform, so you know EXACTLY what the judge will be looking for and
commenting on.)
--Copy of Speech or MUSIC (some categories will require you to show it to the judge,
so have it--Solo Music people - you are DQ'd without copy of music that shows our
copyright permission to perform it.) Anything other than note cards that are held while
you are speaking should be on BLACK construction paper.
--Copy of Notecard, if needed. Again, some categories require you to show your notecard after you deliver your speech. If you are in a 50-word or less notecard category, know that and count your words before you deliver your speech.
--Any supplies you may need. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO COSTUME, so that's not what I mean; I mean blank note cards, paper, pencil, etc--this is for Radio News and Spontaneous primarily.
--Dressed appropriately--no WCHS clothing by you or your "fan club." Girls, tie any loose hair that could fall into your face or eyes during a performance back. This is especially important if you deliver a physical performance such as Acting, Improv, Solo Musical Theatre, etc. Dangling jewelry is not a good idea either. I would recommend that you do not wear jeans. If all you have for dressier pants is jeans, then wear them--pick your best ones! Some schools wear black pants, white shirt; I am not ready to go there yet, but you should look sharp without letting your clothing command more attention than your performance. Again, if you are in a physical performance category, wear something that allows movement without looking overly casual--I suggest you practice in your performance "outfit" before the performance day.
--CONFIDENCE! We are here to learn and grow! Looking and being confident is a HUGE part of delivering a memorable speech/performance! Take a deep breath, practice your intro if you are in a category that uses one, and OWN IT when you get in the room--right from the start--don't look timid, look the judge in the eye, and take it!
--Because we have two teams from WC (freshmen, and soph-seniors), we have 2 school ID numbers: FRESHMEN = 34; SOPH - SENIORS = 19.
