Informative Speech Contest
Present your “Informative Speech.” Teach us about a person, place, or thing, etc. There must be an obvious benefit to your audience. You must use research (at least three to seven references) and cite the sources within your speech, using correct structure and an extemporaneous style of delivery (80-90 percent eye contact with a Speaking Outline or notecards). A typed Preparation (aka Formal) Outline is required as well.
After presenting your 7-9 minute speech, turn in any speech materials that you have used, including paper copies of any visual aids (place them in either a manilla envelope or a pocket folder with your name on it).
See “Chapter 15–Speaking to Inform” and “Chapter 11–Outlining the Speech” for more information. It is essential that you turn in two outlines: 1. Typed Speaking Outline or note cards–printed or typed; 2. Typed Preparation Outline (include a Bibliography section, following APA style). See page 135 for proper APA style.
