The Area One Act Play Contest in Lubbock has been moved to the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders. The school is located at 415 N. Ivory Avenue (It may say Cornell in your GPS). Drive around the school. The auditorium is on the southwest entrance where you will see a glass atrium. A Talkington employee will be seated with a scanning device as you enter. All adults, including administrators, directors, bus drivers, and audience members need to bring a valid Texas driver’s license to be scanned before entering the auditorium. If you would like to avoid the line the day of the contest, the Talkington School has created a way to bypass the kiosk by filling out the required fields with your phones in advance. Please note that advance check-in will only be available until 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 30th. All other attendees will be required to check in on the kiosk upon arrival to Talkington. To pre-check in advance, please follow these instructions: 1). Click on the link associated with your home school (links are only open until 4:00PM Thursday, March 30th) Wellington https://www.schoolsafeid.com/event/644 2). Take a photo and fill out the legal first name, legal last name, and date of birth fields. 3). Select the box next to "I am not a robot" and follow the prompts to verify you are an actual person. 4). Click submit. Notification of successful completion will pop up shortly after. Upon arrival at Talkington, enter the main auditorium entrance located on the southwest side of the building. Those who checked-in in advance will need to provide the school they are associated with and their name. A pre-printed sticker badge will be provided and must be worn at all times when on campus. Those who have not checked in prior to Thursday at 4:00pm will obtain a badge after filling out all appropriate information at the kiosk. Regardless of how you check-in, we recommend you arrive well in advance of your school's performance time. Audience members will only have access to the lobby, restroom, and seating areas of the auditorium. Parents are not allowed to access any other part of the school. Go WHS OAP!
