GREAT EVENT: How to Run a GREAT Speech Contest

What makes a speech contest great? Find out at this Great Event
(Light snacks and drinks will be served)

 

Facilitator Kurt Sims shares "I made lots of mistakes on my first Area contest. Designed specifically for Area/District Governors, but applicable for Club Contests, too, this session will help you identify and focus on those few critical areas that will make your contest the best possible."

Kurt is past Area Governor of F4 and takes pride in making things work for the best. Whether you are novice or a pro at contests, you'll pick up tips and tricks to make YOUR contest shine brighter than a trophy!

      Hi, Kavitha, Click the "Export" link at the top of this page (below the event name). I just tried it with Outlook and it worked properly. Are you using a different calendar tool?
