Speech contests are a Toastmasters tradition. Each year, thousands of Toastmasters compete in the Humorous, Evaluation, Tall Tales, Table Topics, and International speech contests. Competition begins with club contests and winners continue competing through the area, division, district and all new region quarterfinal levels.
Kathmandu Toastmasters Club had annual Humorous Speech and Evaluation contest on 30th September 2019. It was an evening to experience a different ambiance by witnessing a competition on humorous and evaluation speeches; an evening to listen to terrific speakers and get acquainted with their hidden talent as humorous speakers and evaluators.
Thank you everyone for joining us and helping us conduct a wonderful Speech contest session. Special thank you to Toastmaster Ashma Dahal of Himalaya Toastmasters Club for giving the test speech. It is with mutual support that we rise. Also Congratulations to Toastmasters Srishti Vaidya and Mridul Basnet for winning the Humorous and Evaluation Contest respectively.
Something that was supremely inspiring was the collective voluntary efforts invested by the veteran members of the club which once again reminded everyone that when ‘I’ is replaced by ‘we’, then miracles can happen anywhere, anytime.
