Event Description:

Editorial Commentary (not a State event) is similar to what you might hear on talk radio. The speech is performed seated and the competitor reads from a script. This, however, makes good delivery crucial. Use voice variation, facial expression, eye contact, and gestures to enhance your position. This speech should be an analysis of a current, newsworthy event—not just a synopsis of news. It MUST be 1:45-2:00 minutes long.

A scripted speech that is intended to be an analysis of a news event rather than a running synopsis of the news.

Speakers will read the manuscript form a seated position.

The script should be timed to end between 1:45 and 2:00 minutes. Any speaker ending before 1:45 or after 2:00 minutes shall be ranked one score lower.
