Area 51 Speech Contest 2015

This afternoon, Area 51 Toastmasters, led by Area 51 Director Fredroe Para-on, had its Area Contest for Speech to Evaluate and Table Topics. The contest was held at Fontina, Iligan City, 2-5pm.

Area 51 is composed of 4 clubs:

  • BAVI Toastmasters Club
  • Iligan Toastmasters Club
  • Central CDO Toastmasters Club
  • Macajalar Bay Toastmasters Club

Since I’m currently a district officer (Club Extension Chair) I’m taking a break from the contest arena this year. So for this afternoon, I was one of the judges. Having competed (and won) in both categories at the District Level, I can really say that Area 51 has really upped its game. The competition for this afternoon was tough. But of course, there can only be one Champion. Here are the results for the Area 51 Speech Contest.

Congratulations to the winners and to all who joined! The fastest way to improve in Toastmasters is to join competitions. Joining contests allows you to be more intentional in improving your weaknesses and strengthening what you’re already good at. So to all Toastmasters out there, I challenge you to join the next competitions. Next year, it’s going to be Humorous Speech Contest and International Prepared Speech Contest. It’s nerve-wracking and mind-numbing but it’s worth it.

Go live a Truly Wealthy life.
