The New York State Forum Toastmasters Club will be taking a break from their normal meeting format by holding their first Speech Contest on Wednesday, January 30th. The contest will feature members competing in Tall Tales (3-5 minutes) and International speech (5-7 minutes) categories. The subject for the Tall Tales speech must be of a highly exaggerated, improbable nature, and have a theme or plot. International speeches can be about any topic.

This will be a fun program where public speaking skills can be put to good use in an exciting contest atmosphere. All NYS Forum members are invited to come and enjoy what should be a very interesting and exciting event.

What can you expect as a Toastmaster?

  • Experiential Learning - you learn by doing; by giving speeches and fulfilling leadership roles.
  • Self-paced Program - you learn at your own pace and comfort level.
  • Peer Feedback - you receive honest and supportive peer evaluations
  • Mentoring - you will be mentored by experienced members who will encourage, guide and support you.
