The Vicki Stanton Public Speaking Showcase will be held at the Plaster Student Union Theater on Nov. 30. The final round will begin at 5:30 p.m.
What is the Public Speaking Showcase?
About 60 students have been chosen from Missouri State’s Fundamentals of Communication classes to compete in this semester’s showcase.
Participants will present a persuasive speech in front of a panel of judges in two preliminary rounds, competing against up to five other students for the top rankings in the round. The overall top five speakers then compete in the final round.
Winning speech criteria
Students are judged based on speech organization, creation of sound arguments, proving evidential support, creativity, delivery and connection with the audience.
Preliminary judges are communication department instructors and teaching assistants. The final judging panel is comprised of University faculty and community members.
Date: Nov. 30
Time: 5:30-7 p.m.
