Event description

Description

The HCC Speech Tournament is designed to give Speech and Communication students an opportunity to apply their public speaking and communication skills outside of the classroom environment. Students enrolled in speech and communication classes are invited to participate in this event. Students participating in the tournament will present speeches to demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge learned from speech/communication courses.

To compete in the tournament, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • Currently a student at Houston Community College, full-time or part-tim
  • A dual credit student at Houston Community College
  • Have a current GPA of 2.0 or higher
  • Enrolled in a SPCH or COMM course during the 2018-2019 academic year

If you are interested in competing in the speech tournament, please register for this event as a speech tournament registrant. If you are interested in only attending the event, please register as an attendee.

The tournament topics are:

  • Is a college education worth it?
  • Food programs are an effective strategy to overcome hunger.
  • The spirit of volunteerism should be encouraged.
  • Voting: Use it or lose it.
  • Hurricane Harvey and its effect on Student Success (Pros & Cons)

Each participant is expected to research, write, and deliver his/her own speech. Please consult your Speech instructor for advice and assistance in preparing your persuasive speech. Speeches should be persuasive in nature.

The following scholarships will be awarded by the HCC Foundation: 1st place: $500; 2nd place: $200; and 3rd place: $100.00

In addition, please help us tackle hunger by bringing a non-pershiable food donation to the event.
