Speech Team Fees 

You take care of team fees by cash, check, or credit card directly through Eagan High School Forensics' Boosters Wells Fargo checking account. You will be emailed a statement with instructions on making a payment through Wells Fargo.

The required fees each team member needs to pay: 
  1. $60 or $80 District 196 Fine Arts fee, which you can make on the EHS website by clicking here. The District 196 Fine Arts Fee is $60 for freshmen and $80 for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. This is a district activity fee (like the fee you'd pay for your student to participate in a musical or football) and goes directly to the district. 
  2. $105 Speech Team fee, which you take care of by completing form here. 
  3. $35 National Speech & Debate Association membership fee (one-time fee for novices only. Varisty members do not pay this fee.)
The fees that are optional, depending on the activities your team member participates in:
  1. $40 YMCA Team Lock-in fee. The lock-in is January 7, 10 p.m.-5:00 a.m. This is a really amazing team-building experience, and it is recommended for all team members--especially novices. To get a flavor of the night, click here to watch a video that a team member made several years ago when the current seniors were freshmen. 
  2. $125 Marshall Tournament fee. This is a tournament January 27-28 in Marshall, Minnesota. The team will charter a bus and stay overnight in a hotel. It's a two day tournament, and while it's optional, it offers really important experience for all team members. The structure of the tournament provides a unique opportunity for novices to advance in competition. 
  3. In the spring, you'll have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the Forensics Banquet held in May. More to come!
