Toastmasters International Speech Contests
Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year, thousands of Toastmasters compete for the top spot in District 61 to be crowned the best public speaker. At this contest event, the contestants will compete in the following:
- Evaluation Contest – An evaluation speech, where all contestants provide a constructive evaluation on one speech, delivered by a test speaker.
- International Speech Contest – Contestants present a five- to seven-minute speech to deliver a message of their choosing.
Speech Contests benefit everyone, providing:
- an opportunity for speakers to improve their speaking abilities
- recognition to the best as encouragement to all
- the opportunity to learn by observing other speakers.
Each contest begins at the club level. Winners of the club contests continue to compete at the Area contests. Today, we celebrate those who have won their Club contests and are competing to win the Area contests. Winners of this contest will continue
