6th Annual Redmond Mustang Classic
2023 — Redmond, WA/US
Competitors in Editorial Commentary will each prepare a speech that lasts between 1 minute and 45 seconds and 2 minutes. This speech will be similar to an editorial column in a newspaper. The competitors will present their speeches and judges shall time them, with no grace period being provided for this particular event. Each competitor is allowed to print their speech on a sheet of paper and read from it during the event. Since competitors prepare their speech ahead of the round they will not be given a topic by the judge, but must simply present the speech that they have prepared. Time signals are permitted.
