Club members and NYS Forum guests, please join us for this special edition Toastmasters meeting. The Toastmasters International Annual Speech Contest is a chance for our club members to take their communication and leadership skills to the next level.

The two contest categories for 2019-2020 will be International Speech and Evaluation. The winners of each category are eligible to advance to the next level of competition. The Toastmasters Annual Contest begins at the club level and continues with area, division, district, regional, international level contests and ultimately, the World Championship of Public Speaking contest.

International Speech Contest, contestants present a five to seven minute speech on any subject they choose.

Evaluation Contest, contestants observe a five to seven minute speech and then present a two to three minute evaluation of the speech.

  • Speech contestants will be members of the NYS Forum Toastmasters Club.
  • A panel of judges, comprised of experienced Toastmasters, will determine the winners of each category based on Toastmasters International Speech Contest Rules

If you've been curious about Toastmasters, this is a great event to see another aspect of the opportunities for growth and learning with the Toastmasters program. Please join us to provide a supportive audience for our competitors.
