Toastmasters is where leaders are made. Speech contests are an importat part of the Toastmasters educational program and occur through out the organizational structure beginning at the club level. Winners at the club level advance to compete in the area contests. We will hear speeches from some of the best speakers in Area E 18. In the International Speech contest, speakers will deliver a 5-7 minutes original speech on a subject selected by the contestant. In the Table Topics contest, all speakers will deliver a 2 minutes speech on a subject determined by the contest chair. Both contests are fun and inspiring. Certificates are awarded to the winners at the end of the program. Potluck refreshments. Contact Carolyn Douglas 510-230-4364.
