Contest Resources

The Fall and Spring contest seasons are an integral part of the Toastmasters year. Contests provide an opportunity for speakers to improve their speaking abilities, recognize Toastmasters who compete as an inspiration to us all, and provide an opportunity for us to learn by observing speakers who have benefited from their Toastmasters training. Contests also provide new leadership opportunities for those members who are part of the team that plans the contest and makes it happen.

Contests begin at the club level. Club winners compete at the local Area Contest. Area Contest winners compete at the local Division Contests. Division Contest winners compete at the District Conference. District International Speech Contest winners go on to represent the District at the International semi-finals at the annual Toastmasters International Convention.

On this page you’ll find resources to help you plan and hold a contest at any level.
