Announcement_Speech Contests

Angeline Lee, VPE

Dear Friendship Members,

Our International Speech and Table Topics Contests will be held on 25 Jan 2011, one week after our regular club meeting on 18 Jan.

Who will be our next International Speech Contest Champion ?
Who will be our next Table Topics Contest Champion ?

The answer is YOU !

All you have to do is sign up to be a contestant and prepare your 5-7 minute speech for the International Speech Contest. You may speak on any topic, as long as it is in good taste. The minimum qualification is that you have completed the first six speeches in the Competent Communication manual

For the Table Topics Contest, you will have 2 practice sessions at our Jan 4 and 18 meetings to prepare for your winning 1-2 minutes impromptu speech on 25 Jan. The minimum qualification is that you are a Toastmasters member.

You may be thinking, "But I don’t like to take part in contests".

Why don’t you think of it as another opportunity to practice and polish your speaking and thinking skills ? Instead of a U-shape table arrangement, you will be facing an audience seated in a theatre style arrangement. There will be a slightly larger crowd and you will see new faces (visitors from other Toastmasters clubs). All of us want you to win !

The winners will proceed to our Area W3 Contest to be held on Thursday 3 March 2011 at 7 PM. The winners from Area W3 Contest will then proceed to Division W Contest to be held at Great Eastern Hall on Sat 13 March 2011 1.30 PM.

The trophy for the Friendship International Speech & Table Topics Contests awaits the rightful owner – YOU. Take the first step and sign up for the contest. If you are new and need help/guidance on what to do as a contestant, just ask and you shall receive (the answers).

Looking forward to hearing from you, the future Friendship International Speech and Table Topics Champion.

Best regards,
Angeline, VPE
