The Speech Contest Judges Guide and Ballot Workshop
How Judges Select the Winning Speech
Your purpose as a Speech Contest Judge is to select a winner. The best way to select the winning speech is to use the standard Toastmasters International Judges Guide and Ballot as your guide and review a speaker’s total performance in three key areas of effective speaking: content, delivery, language. But first, you need to understand the true meaning of each ballot form criterion.
‘The Speech Contest Judges Guide and Ballot workshop’ delves deeply into the ballot—you gain an in-depth understanding of each ballot form criterion—what it means and what it doesn’t mean.
- Find out how reviewing a speaker’s performance in the International, Humorous, and Table Topic speech contests differs—and why the funniest speeches or the most inspirational speeches are not necessarily the winning speeches;
- Discover why and how the Evaluation Speech Contest judging ballot is significantly different to the other Toastmasters contest ballots—and how good judges use it;
- See four highly ranked speeches (International, Table Topics, Humorous, and Evaluation)— review and discuss these speeches using the ballot to discover why these speeches are so highly ranked.
