Normally, Toastmasters is not a competitive arena. Far from it. As the banner says—the slogan that overlooks our every meeting—“Evolving Together, Shaping Our World.”
Twice a year, however, we evolve through the process of spirited competition.

Harmony Hall, Gibsons
Morningstars Toastmasters Club
International Speech Competition
& Speech Evaluation Contest
Here’s what you need to know:
Three Speech contestants and four Evaluation contestants have boldly stepped forward. It’s not too late to join them. Contact us if you’d like to be added to the list of competitors, or if you’d like more information about the competitions.
We also have a stellar lineup of three judges, one chief judge, two timers, counters, and who knows what else. I’m the contest chair and am climbing a steep learning curve on the way to running a smooth show.
If you don’t have a role, you do now—audience! What’s a blood sport without applauders and appreciators.
And bring a friend. Guests welcome, as usual.
Please note: we are assembling at Harmony Hall even earlier than usual. By 7 a.m. all contestants and judges start their briefing sessions. The show starts shortly after that.
See you there!
