Q: Will my student receive recognition for his or her performance?
A: Yes, absolutely! As always, we’ll end our tournament with an award ceremony, and present our winners with a memento of their success.
Q: Why should I register my student?
A: Our tournaments are always a highlight of the semester for our students. Students have a chance to grow in confidence, turn practice into performance, and accelerate their progress and skills.
Q: What are the different events?
A: We encourage you to ask your student! If you’re still confused, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Is this an all-day event?
A: Yes. Students must be available for the full competition day in order to enter the tournament. A student may leave early only if they do not make it past the preliminary rounds, which run until 2:30 pm. However, we encourage all our students to stay and watch the finalists and attend the awards ceremony!
Q: How can I help my student prepare?
A: Your student is already preparing in class! However, practicing at home can be very valuable for a student. Consider letting your student practice their speeches for you as well!
