YOUR Speech Contest Advantage
Before you know it, the International Speech contest season will be here. Competitors across the district will be preparing to bring their best speech possible to the contests. Do you know where to begin and how to achieve contest success? Wouldn’t it be great if there were some way to get on the fast track? Attend this fun and informative session, which will cover topics ranging from topic selection, writing and delivery tips, and an extensive Q&A session (come ready with your questions), led by someone with an unequaled track record of success in the contests. You will walk away with practical ideas that will give you a significant head start towards your own success in the contest. (Note: Even if you’re not competing this time around, it will be beneficial for you in the future.)
Jim Key was District 50’s Humorous Speech Champion before getting involved in the International Speech Contest. He was the first person to ever make it to the World Championships of Public Speaking in three consecutive years, where he finished as the first runner-up in 2001 and 2002, before taking the top award and becoming the World Champion of Public Speaking in 2003. Since then, he has coached and mentored scores of competitors, including several Finalists, and two subsequent World Champions.
