One Act Play Information

Welcome Regional Competitors and Coaches!

WTAMU is excited to have you on campus. Here are some tips to help you with your day:

  • The Academic Portion will be on the WTAMU Campus on Friday, April 26.
  • The One Act Play Competition will be on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 at the Randall High School Auditorium.
  • The information center is in the Jack B. Kelley Student Center (JBK), on the lower level in the West Texas Room (33). Academic verification will occur in either the West Texas Room. Speech verification will take place in CC 427.
  • The student gathering area will be in Legacy Hall located in the JBK. Please have students congregate/study/wait in this location. There will be some activities available to students there and awards will take place in Legacy Hall.
  • Tests will be mailed due to regional contests still taking place the next day across the state. No need for a self-addressed stamped envelope this year, you will have a school envelope in each contest room. We will combine tests to mail to each school. 
  • All students finishing 1st place in any individual test/speech contest will receive a $1,000.00 scholarship to the University. This will be good for the Fall of 2024 or 2025. Please stop by West Texas (33) and give us your information.
  • Journalism events and Ready Writing will be located in the Marmaduke Internet Innovation Center (MIIC – former HELC). Room 9. Students are not required to bring computers or printers they are provided.
  • Journalism coaches – you may be asked to assist in judging events that you do not have competitors in. Please be aware that you may be contacted to do so.
  • Speech events will be headquartered in the Classroom Center (CC) 427. Postings will be on the 4th floor.
  • The hospitality room for coaches and judges will be in the Hazel Kelley Wilson Room on the first floor of the JBK.
  • Tests may be viewed in West Texas (33) as soon as they have been graded.
  • Bus parking is at the First United Bank Center parking lot. Students and sponsors can ride the shuttle. Suburbans and vans can park in Zones 12 and 5 as parking enforcement will be suspended for our event in those locations only.
  • Coaches will need to help score the objective items. Proctors will make announcements for when and where grading will take place. This will depend on the contest.  
  • The JBK Food Court has a variety of options, but operates cashless. Individuals that do not have debit cards can use cash to load a Gold Card from the Gold Card cash box located in the JBK Food Court area or they can use cash to purchase a pre-loaded $10 Gold Card from the University Bookstore (with the ability to add more to the balance from the machine).  
  • We will use the Remind App to send out announcements (specifically to announce Verification times). The class name is 2A Region 1 UIL. You can join here: Due to restrictions from Remind, we needed to clear out the “class” so you will need to join again this year, even if you have done so in the past.
