The Division B International Speech Contest will be held online on Thursday, April 30th, at 7pm. I will make arrangements to have contestant and judge briefings prior to that date. Toastmasters International has issued adjusted rules for online contests. Bear in mind: this is only the Division contest. The rules for recording the Video Contest or the District Contest to use at the Regional and Semi-Final contests do not apply.
Contestants are required to supply their own equipment (computer, camera, microphone) at their own expense. Hence the postponement, in case anyone does not have the necessary equipment yet. You will also be asked to supply a cell phone number to the Chief Judge, Contest Chair, and ZoomMaster for backup communication if there is a technology glitch.
I look forward to seeing all of you online for the contest. Please come support our contestants! As always, the next World Champion of Public Speaking could come from our Division!
