Have you ever wanted to be a speech contest judge? Have you ever gone to a contest and wondered why your “selections” didn’t win? Have you ever asked what the judges were thinking?
As speech contest season approaches, having well-trained judges will be critical to the success of the contests at all levels.
What to expect
Our Immediate Past District Director, Johanne Von Zuben, will take us through the judging process. As someone who knows the rule book backwards and forwards, Johanne will get you prepared to judge fairly, consistently, and by the rules!
This interactive workshop will not only benefit judges-to-be, but also the contestants, as they learn about the evaluation criteria.
The Area contests for Division D will draw upon the members who have been trained at this workshop to be judges. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to increase your skills and awareness!
Will there be food?
YES! Light refreshments will be served, and there will be a $2.00 entrance fee.
So…where and when?
The workshop will be held at the Scarborough Civic Centre, located at 140 Borough Drive, Toronto, ON M1P 4N6. Registration begins at 6:30pm and the workshop starts at 7:00pm.
There is street parking on Borough Drive after 6pm. Alternatively, you may park at the mall (Scarborough Town Centre) and walk to the Scarborough Civic Centre (through the mall and across Albert Campbell Square).
