This NIEs library contains all 2017-18 Individual Events documents, specifically:
• a summary of changes from 2016-17 to 2017-18;
• an “At a Glance” table summarizing the events and corresponding guidelines;
• the complete 2017-18 National Individual Events guide; and
• an optional community standards and copyright form if needed for your school, district, or state.
The rubrics can be found in the 2017-18 NIEs Rubric libraries (High school and Middle school).
We would like to thank everyone who offered their input and expertise in the original creation of these documents: our writing team of Dr. Mary Schuttler, Leslie Van Leishout, and Cory Wilkerson; Individual Events Committee members Paul Hampton, Craig Inhen, Kit Rodgers, and Dr. Jay Seller; the Colorado Thespians; the chapter directors who participated in the town hall meetings; and the nearly 600 members who participated in the surveys.
Additionally, thank you to the EdTA Board and the leaders from the 2016 Leadership Summit for clarification and program enhancements. The 2016-17 committee leaders were Cece Conrath, Stewart Hawk, Gai Jones, Melissa Mintzer, Nick Sostillio, Alan Strait, and Kendra Willeby.
