Registration Opens Soon!

Hi everyone,

We’re excited to announce that registration for this year’s Yale Invitational will take place this Saturday, August 1st at 1:00 PM Eastern Time. The link will be available here  on the Yale Tabroom website once it is open.

As a reminder, all entries will automatically be placed on a waitlist. Two weeks after registrations open, we will fairly and evenly take students off the waitlist. DO NOT MAKE PLANE RESERVATIONS UNTIL YOUR ENTRIES ARE VERIFIED. 

If you have further questions, please refer to the invitation to see if we’ve answered them; if not, feel free to email us at

Speech Updates

Hi everyone,

We hope you have been enjoying your summers so far. We are excited to announce that this year we will be expanding our Speech events to include the new NSDA main stage event, Program Oral Interpretation (POI).

We also wanted to clarify that, as in years past, Oral Interpretation will be one event rather than two separate events for poetry and prose.

We will update the invitation with the rules for POI shortly, but we will be following NSDA regulations for it. As always, feel free to email us at if you have any questions.

Happy prepping,

Michelle and Philip
