Hello, Extemp Competitors!

The Extemp Prep room will be in Room S205.

3:15 p.m. Thursday: Place Extemp materials in the Extemp Prep room.

11:00 a.m. Saturday: Remove all Extemp boxes and personal possessions from the Extemp Prep room. Please designate a team captain to oversee these deadlines.


Please review the Extemp Rules for the 2019-2020 competition season and be aware of the following change:

A competitor must not use another competitor's or club’s files or electronic devices without the written permission of the coach or parent of the competitor loaning the extemp materials. This permission must be submitted in writing to the Extemp Room Proctor BEFORE the competitor uses the files and/or devices.


1. Students must accept full responsibility for the safety and security of their electronic devices for the duration of the tournament.
2. Bring a power strip to plug in more than one computer.
3. Fully charge your computer before your draw time.
4. Remember to set your devices to airplane mode.

Note: Electronic filing is completely optional. You may still use boxes and hard copies if you prefer.

Draw Times

It is your responsibility to know your speaker position, your draw time, and your speak time. We expect you to use this information to manage your time appropriately. As a reminder, your speak time begins exactly 30 minutes after your draw time. The judges will have a list of speak times, and they will expect you to begin your speech at the correct time for your speaker position.
