SpeechWire Festival Manager Instructions

SpeechWire logoSpeechWire is a full-service solution that will allow festivals to schedule students and adjudicators to contest rooms, and it will generate schedule reports as well as team rosters with schedule assignments for each student. It also will print a master ballot for each adjudicator, each round -- with contestants pre-printed, so the adjudicator only has to copy the score totals from each individual evaluation sheet. During the festival, the contest manager/host can enter scores for each round, and these will be reported to the state office for purposes of determining advancement from subdistrict to district and from district to State.
