Tuesday August 30: Club Speech Contest

On Tuesday, August 30, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm, we will hold our Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contest. This contest is open to everyone! All you need to do is be a paid member in good standing. See below for more details. Contact Vidya Kagan, VP-Education and Contest Chair, at vped@menloparktm.org if you would like to sign up as a speaker or a volunteer.

Speakers: We need speakers for both sections of the contest. Our goal is to get 3 speakers minimum for each section.

  1. Humorous Speech Contest: Contestants present a humorous speech that must be thematic in nature (opening, body, and close), not a monologue (series of one-liners).
  2. Evaluation Contest: Contestants observe a five-to seven-minute test speech and then present a two-to three-minute evaluation of the test speech.

Volunteers: We need volunteers for the following positions: Chief Judge, voting judges, counters, timers. All details are spelled out in the Speech Contest Rulebook (link below). Please note: if you are a volunteer for a specific contest, you cannot be a speaker in that same contest, and vice versa.

For complete details, please review the 2016-2017 Speech Contest Rulebook on the Toastmasters website.

Please contact Vidya to sign up! Thank you, and looking forward to a great contest!
