Student Speaker Challenge Contest Details:
The ULSU, LPIRG, and SACPA are looking for undergraduate students to participate in the upcoming public speaking competition on the subject of CIVIL LIBERTIES. You can approach the topic any way you choose, the only requirement is that each round of the competition you will address the topic of Civil Liberties from the local (round 1), national (round 2), and international (finals round) levels. PowerPoints and visual aides are not to be included as this is a SPEAKING competition.
A collection of three judges (faculty, student, and community member) will judge your speech from a grading rubric and you will be awarded your points based on that. You will receive this rubric before the competition and your results after each round and depending on the number of contestants and how well you have done, will depend whether you move onto the next round or not.
First place will receive $1000, second place $500, and 3rd and 4th place will receive $250 each.
To submit your name for competition please email your Full Name, student ID#, major, and contact number to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a brief abstract on what you plan on discussing, with the subject heading "Student Speaker Challenge Submission". You will receive a confirmation response to verify you have been added to the list of competitors. Deadline of Submission is January 22 at 4:30pm.
The event will take place January 27th, February 3rd, and February 10th in the open atrium in Markin Hall at 7pm each of these days.
Snacks and refreshments will be provided so to encourage students and others to be an audience for this event.
If you are nervous about public speaking, or constructing an argument there will be a public speaking workshop provided for contestants prior to the contest, and further details about this will be sent out to participants at a later date.
If you have any further questions, or concerns please do not hesitate to contact VP Academic Lisa Hildebrand at email@example.com or by phone 403.329.2770
