News: International Speech Contest on February 28, 2016

CONTESTThe annual International Speech Contest, as well as the Table Topics Contest, will be held during the time of our regularly scheduled meeting on Sunday, February 28, at 9:00 a.m.

Every year, all Toastmaster speech contests, such as the Evaluation, Tall Tales, Humorous, and Table Topics, begin at the club level and culminate at the District Conference.

However, the International Speech Contest is the only Toastmaster speech contest that advances past the District level and continues at the International Convention where the winner is awarded the title “World Champion of Public Speaking.”

It is truly an international affair as competitors from Toastmasters clubs from all over the world enter this contest.

Renaissance Speakers own Lance Miller was the 2005 World Champion of Public Speaking. And Lance began his journey at our club contest in February of that year.

That is quite the feat when one considers that Toastmasters’ worldwide membership is more than 332,000 people who attend one of the 15,400 clubs in 135 countries.

This is your chance to witness the start of our next winner’s quest to reach Washington DC, the site of the 2016 International Speech Contest finals!

And you won’t want to miss the Table Topics contest which will challenge the best of our impromptu speakers.

Make your plans to be at Renaissance Speakers on Sunday morning, February 28. Seats are limited!
