Stephen Stewart Memorial Middle and High School Invitational
2023 — Milpitas, CA/US
Impromptu (IMP): NOTE: Students should remain in the room while the other contestants are speaking. Exceptions can be made for double entered students. In this event, the student actually prepares the speech during the round. The judge will call the first contestant and hand her/him a piece of paper containing three predetermined topics. The student will have two minutes, from the time s/he is handed the paper, to prepare their speech. The student then gets five minutes to deliver their speech once they begin speaking. This means that the total time for each contestant is seven minutes (2 minutes for preparation and 5 minutes to speak). Students should speak, in an organized manner, on ONE of the three topics given to them.
