This afternoon, Division F held its Speech Contest at Grand City Hotel. Three areas – Areas 51, 52 & 53 – competed in two categories: Evaluation Contest & Table Topics Contest. Each area had 2 representatives making it 6 contestants competing per category.
The table topics contest was held first. Each contestant had to answer the quote: “Sometimes the question is complicated, but the answer is simple.” I was one of the judges for table topics, and judging was a completely different feeling from competing. Being a contestant is more nerve-wracking, there’s no doubt about it. The Evaluation contest came after, where there was one test speaker and all 6 contestants had to evaluate her.

I have to relinquish the Table Topics perpetual trophy during the Midyear Conference. I hope I’ll see it back at Division F soon! And of course, no Division F Contest will be complete without the intermission numbers. Each area had to perform and all the performers chose to sing. For a moment, I felt like I was watching The Voice – Toastmasters edition, instead of a speech contest.
The Champions in the Division contest will then represent Division F at the District 75 Midyear Conference this coming October 17-18 at St. Agatha Resort and Country Club in Tikay, Malolos, Bulacan.
- P2,888 until Sept 15, 2015
- P3,888 from Sept 16 onwards
