Toastmasters host humorous speech contest

The Nevada County Toastmasters Clubs will present a Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contest at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, in Nevada City. The public is invited to this free event, which will feature skilled speakers presenting humorous speeches. A mystery speaker from outside Nevada County will present a model speech, which our skilled local speakers will evaluate. Judges will rate the various speeches and the winners will go on to compete at the next levels. Contestants have been selected from the following local Area 64 Toastmasters clubs: Penn Valley, Mother Lode, Empire, and Early Risers.

The Speech Contest will take place at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Office at 112 Nevada City Highway in Nevada City. Come at 6 p.m. to enjoy snacks and socializing before the contest. For information about the free event, call 265-5976.
