Excel as a Contest Judge

About this event

Speech contest time is around the corner! Join us and build your skills and become a confident Toastmasters International Speech Contest Judge.

Together we will review a judge’s eligibility requirements and duties, identify barriers to objectivity, discuss how to overcome hidden bias, and dispel some of the common myths about the rule book. We will also talk about:

  • The difference between judging and evaluating
  • The qualities of a good judge
  • How to use the judging ballots
