Big D Fall 2014 Contest
From left to right: Zak Karamally (Humorous, 2nd place), Leana McGuire (Evaluation, 2nd place), Marc Mixon (Evaluation, 1st place), Don Teague (Humorous, 3rd place), Ron Steiner (Humorous, 1st place), Linda Martin (our brilliant Test Speaker), and Courtney Bradley (Contest Master). Not shown is Mac Smith (Evlauation, 3rd place).

It’s fall, and that means Toastmasters contest season!

While Big D Toastmasters is always a supportive and cooperative environment, there are times when we like to indulge in the competitive spirit. On August 21, we held two contests, one for best humorous speech, and one for best speech evaluation. People at all levels of Toastmasters experience participated, some as contestants (half of the competitors have been Toastmasters for under a year), and others in roles such as ballot counters, timers, judges. Most importantly, as we like to say at Big D, “A good time was had by all.”
