Our Mission: To foster a competitive and creative outlet for high school
these students, while providing a forum for competition and constructive
feedback as well as encouraging growth and development in the
Our Vision: We propose to develop a competition format that will allow
educators to utilize the strengths of their present programs. Currently, we
offer a series of set categories which will be included in every competition in
order to create a set level of expectation for all. Some of these Core
Categories presently include various styles of monologues (dramatic &
comedic), scenes, improvisation and impromptu speeches. Additional
competitive activities may be employed as “Wild Card” categories and may
include events such as Shakespearean monologues, pantomime,
persuasive speeches, musical renditions or poetry readings. The
opportunities for YOUR input are vast!
Additionally, we have a standardized format for evaluation that will allow for
constructive and positive criticism, but foster in each participant a sense of
growth and accomplishment. Evaluations will be performed by members of
competing schools as well as trained judges and will assume a holistic
approach to assess both content and delivery.
Presently, a schedule of competitions is being offered throughout the state
of New Jersey. Separate mailings with additional information will be
available for each of these. Fees for these competitions are minimal and will
depend upon the number of students performing from your school. Any
high school in New Jersey may attend its events. (Ultimately, the NJDFL will
culminate in a Final Competition and the overall winner will take home the
coveted Looby Cup.
