Speech Contest Resources


Toastmasters speech contests have three purposes:

  1. Provide competitive speaking experience for Toastmasters members
  2. Provide interesting educational programs for members and the public
  3. Provide the audience an opportunity to learn by observing proficient speakers

It’s important that all speech contests are conducted properly and good judging is vital to this. Good judging imparts a feeling of fairness to contestants and the audience and that the right choice was made.

The District and Division Chief Judges are available to help you run a successful speech contest.
