NITOC requires 100% electronic script submission.
You will receive a confirmation email once your script has been received and approved. Please save a copy of this confirmation email on your phone or print it out to have with you at Check-In.

Script Submission forms must be signed by both the parent and coach. If you are competing independently, please designate so beside the coach signature.
If your script is sent back (after first submission), the sender of the initial submission will be notified by email.
If your script is sent back again (second submission), both the parent and coach will be notified by text.
If the script is still not in compliance (third submission), the NITOC Script Director will contact the parent and coach by text and/or phone.
Students will be allowed one more submission by the Script Director’s deadline (fourth submission). If the script is still not in compliance, the speech will be dropped from NITOC.
All NITOC approved scripts, are subject to the Event Rules and can be adjudicated upon rule violation.
