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.
To Get Started
Register your school for any of these events by completing the South-Central Student Activities Registration form.
Once processed, the password for the handbooks is included in the confirmation notice emailed immediately to the school coordinator. For a complete listing of resources available (including a Coordinator Handbook) see "Resources" below. These files help schools plan and coordinate the event at their own school as well as prepare for and attend the district level event. Still have Questions? E-mail South-Central Student Activities Office.
This page is "under construction" until mid-August while the 2018-2019 handbooks and resources are uploaded and links created. The links will turn blue when the new material is ready.
