Common Rules for Impromptu Speech Competitions
1. Contestants draw three topics, select one, and speak on the topic after three minutes of preparation. The topic selected is not returned to the envelope or container. Because such events are meant to be educational, contestants may remain in the contest room and listen to other speakers. Audiences are welcome.
2. Contestants may use blank paper to organize ideas during preparation. However, no notes may be used when giving the speech.
3. The section chairperson is to see that the judges have ballots and evaluation sheets and that the timekeeper is in place before the first speaker begins.
4. When the round is over, the chairperson gathers the evaluations and ballots from the judges and delivers them to the tabulation room. Instruct judges not to leave the contest until released by the contest director, so they are available if any questions arise in tabulating results.
5. Announce the names or numbers of the contestants who will be advancing to the final round, if a final round is required.
