It’s Competition Time!

Competitions provide a great opportunity for members to prepare and present a speech or to participate in evaluation or table topics contests. This Wednesday (competition night #1) will feature Humorous speeches and a Table Topics contest. The Humorous contest requires participants to present a 5 – 7 minute speech that has a completed structure (intro, body & conclusion). A contestant will be disqualified if the speech is less than four minutes 30 seconds or more than seven minutes 30 seconds.

Table Topics contestants will be individually bought into the room and be asked to present a short impromptu speech spanning one to two minutes. A contestant will be disqualified if the speech is less than one minute or more than two minutes 30 seconds. A judging panel from Mornington will be present on Wednesday and members are encouraged to come along on the night even if they are not participating.
