winners_600Our recent club contest offered the opportunity for members to compete in a friendly environment, while challenging themselves. This particular contest included the International Speech Contest — speeches along an inspirational vein — and an Evaluation Contest.

The Speech Contest was held first. Competitor Franni’s speech “The Next Chapter,” compared the phases of her life to book chapters. Competitor Kristine compared life’s many distractions to squirrels and explained how she eliminated these distractions in a recent vacation.

In the Evaluation Contest, test speaker Joy spoke on leadership values. Afterward, evaluators Laura, Judy and Phil offered constructive criticism on her presentation.

Congratulations to first place winners Franni and Laura and to all the competitors!
