"How 2020 Opens Opportunities" is the theme for this year's speech contest, which will mostly likely take place in a virtual space, unless the COVID situation improves in our area in the very near future. If your club hasn't already informed our speech contest chairperson, Bill Highland, of the date that your contest will take place, please e-mail him ASAP. Other upcoming dates for the speech contest are: 
  • March 21, 2021: deadline to complete all club contests.
  • April 26, 2021: deadline to complete all area semifinal contests.
  • May 2021: District Speech Contest finals location and date TBD
If you are having any trouble planning, recruiting or are worried about the technology with a virtual contest, Bill has been hosting webinars for the past few months to help prepare our district as best we can. Reach out to him and he can point you in the right direction.
