Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year thousands of Toastmasters compete in the Humorous, Evaluation, Tall Tales, Table Topics and International speech contests. Competition begins with club contests and winners continue competing through the area, division and district levels.

We will present two speech contests this evening:
Evaluation Contest: Contestants observe a five-to seven-minute test speech and then present a two-to three-minute evaluation of the test speech.

Humorous Contest: Contestants present a humorous speech that must be thematic in nature (opening, body, and close), not a monologue (series of one-liners).

5:00pm: Registration, light snacks, networking
5:30pm: Contest begins
7:30pm: Contest ends

Cost: $7 (proceeds cover the cost of trophies and refreshments)

Interested in volunteering at the event? Contact Division D Director Natasha Baker-Streit at natasha.bakerstreit.tm@gmail.com

Contestants do not need to pay or preregister to attend the event.
