Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year thousands of Toastmasters around the world compete in two annual competitions.
On March 29, Morningstars Toastmasters will hold their club level competition for International Speech and Evaluation Contest. This special event will be held during our regular meeting time (7am – 8:30am) at Harmony Hall and chaired by our VP of Membership, Michael Worsfold.
Winners from the club contests will continue to compete through the area, division and district levels. The International competition has two additional levels — semifinal and the World Championship of Public Speaking.
Contestants observe a five-to seven-minute test speech and then present a two-to three-minute evaluation of the test speech. Any member in good standing (membership paid up) is eligible. Please refer to the 2016-2017 Contest Rule Book for complete details.
