Helpful Hints for a Successful Speech Meet

October 23rd, 2020

We are looking forward to another great Speech Meet on November 18, even if it looks a little different this year. Selections are due today! Once your child’s selection has been approved by his/her teacher, it is time to start memorizing, practicing, and polishing. Here are the categories our judges will take into consideration:

Eyes – Comfortably engages audience with eye contact
Body Language – Excellent posture and position; engaging
Expression – Face and voice effectively and appropriately support the material
Enunciation/Fluency – Loud, clear speech; fluent phrasing
Memory/Accuracy – Fully memorized; no prompting needed

While we will not be able to welcome guests to attend this year, we are looking into ways to record the speeches so parents can view them.
