Our meeting on February 21 hold the International Speech Contest as well as Evaluation Contest. The Contest Chair hosting the evening was Ania Witkowska CC. Ania did an outstanding job. Everything was perfectly prepared and went smoothly.
- International Speech Contest participants presented a short speech each, competing for the right to perform at the next level – the Area Contest, and then subsequently all the way up to the World level at the Toastmasters International Convention in the Summer.
- Evaluation Contest participants were, in turn, evaluating a single speech, performed by Jarek Piotrowski. This was probably be the most thoroughly evaluated speech ever held in our club.
All contestants were judged by a panel of Toastmasters from the Speaking Elephants and other clubs, presided by Chief Judge of the evening – Iwona Ksiądzyna, who enjoyed great help from counters and timers.
The winners of the contest are Milena Paluchowska and Chris Bolinger.
Congratulations to the winners and runner-ups of our contest, who advanced to the next stage – Area Contest, held in early April in Warsaw.
