Competitors will receive a one rank penalty for going overtime by 15 seconds or more. There is no minimum time requirement.

Timepieces will be placed in each room and will be facing the student when speaking. ALL students will be responsible to self-monitor the time when speaking.

We strongly suggest that you practice presenting your speech with a visible timepiece.

We will try to have a timer person in each of the limited prep rooms. But there will be Time piece instructions for the Head judge for all the rooms.

We request that siblings of participants serve as timekeepers. If you, as a competitor, happen to only have events in one pattern, please plan to time for one round.
