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.
This evening we will present two contests, Table Topics and International Speech contests. For the Table Topics contest, contestants are assigned a general topic, told to them when they are introduced by the contest chair, and give an impromptu speech; for the International Speech Contest, contestants present a five- to seven- minute speech on any subject they choose.
Join us in this great opportunity to not only watch some of the best speakers in the Toastmasters compete, but also to meet other Toastmasters from outside your clubs!
