Division I Humorous & International Speech Contests

March 28, 2023 @ 6:15 PM - 9:15 PM


Speech contests are an important part of the Toastmasters educational program. They provide an opportunity for Toastmasters to gain speaking experience, as well as an opportunity for other Toastmasters to learn by observing proficient speakers and organizing events outside their club.

Our 2023 contests will be held virtually, via Zoom. Join the representatives from our Division I clubs as they compete in their division-level Humorous & International Speech Contests!

See the Toastmasters International 2022–2023 Speech Contest Rulebook for eligibility requirements (and all other rules), and the District 28 contest resources page for more information on running, supporting, or competing in speech contests.


  • Each area in Division I can send up to two contestants for each contest.
  • If you have any questions or are interested in serving as a functionary, please contact event chair Ian Chalmers.
