What’s new from past years:
This year we had just one Annual Conference featuring our Evaluation and International Speech Contests. We did not conduct a Humorous or Table Topics Contest. This allowed our members and our clubs to spend more time focused on their educational goals, developing their communication and leadership skills.
New Regional Quarterfinal Stage
The 2018–2019 International Speech Contest is the first to include Region Quarterfinals. The new sequence is: district contests, region quarterfinals, semifinals and then finals. The Quarterfinals are judged online from the professional video recording we took of Camille Miller’s winning speech and the other 8 contestants in our region (Region 1). The results of this next stage will be announced in July and the winners going to the August Toastmasters International Convention in Denver. More information about the new Region Quarterfinals can be found here.
