What is Speech?

As the name implies, yes, you’ll speak in front of others, but you’ll typically only speak to 5+ people at a time and there are 13 different categories to choose from, each requiring different skills. If you enjoy telling stories and captivating your audience, explaining an interesting object or idea, persuading others, or discussing complex issues to find a solution - then there is a category for you! You’ll be able to choose a category or two that interests you and you’ll only compete in that category.  Speeches are all less than 10 minutes long.
