Toastmasters hosting annual contests
Prescott-area Toastmasters will be having their annual Area Speech Evaluator and International Speaker contests at 1 p.m. Saturday, at the Aztlan Masonic Lodge in Prescott. The Aztlan Lodge, 1028 Willow Creek Road in Prescott, the entrance behind the Bank of America branch, facing Safeway. The public is welcome. Admission is free.
The Speech Evaluation contestants test their ability to listen, analyze and evaluate a speaker's talk. The winner will go on to compete in the regional contest in Phoenix.
Prior to the contests, there will be two "coaching sessions" focused on speaking and evaluating, also open to the public. It will be a great opportunity to learn what Toastmasters is about.
Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of meeting locations.
