South-Central Speech Meet

Speech Meets are designed to help students develop techniques to speak audibly, articulately, expressively, and with poise and confidence. Students demonstrate their ability by delivering a memorized poem, speech, or passage. Contestants do not compete against one another; rather, they are judged against an established set of criteria.

For more information see Speech Meet in the South-Central Student Activities Participation Guide.
