As the contest season comes around the corner, we want to make sure everyone gets a chance to learn all about contests.
We plan to cover everything from coordinating and supporting contests, judging contests, to being a model speaker and evaluator in an evaluation contest, and finally being an international speech contestant.
To be eligible to compete in any official Toastmasters speech contest, a member must be a paid member of the club, area, division, and district in which he or she is competing. The club must also be in good standing. In addition, to be eligible to compete in the International Speech Contest, a member must have completed at least six speech projects in the Competent Communication manual or have earned a Certificate of Completion in Levels 1 and 2 of any path in the Toastmasters Pathways learning experience prior to the club contest.
