Speech Contests

Every six months the club conducts two speech contests. In the fall we hold the Evaluation Contest and the Humorous Speech Contest; in the spring we hold the Table Topics Contest and the International Speech Contest. The winners move on to compete at the Area Contests. Area Contest winners compete at the Division Contests. Division Contest winners compete at the District Contest. District winners of the International Speech Contest continue on hoping for the title of World Champion of Public Speaking.

Below are the club contest winners of record and links to their speeches where available.
