glasgow speech contest 2014

Glasgow hosted our annual fall speech contest. The contestants comprised students in COMM 145: Fundamentals of Public Speaking and Communication, and sections focused on Business and Professional Communication. Students competed with one another by giving speeches within one of the two categories of COMM 145 and are judged on the effectiveness and presentation of their speeches.

After the speeches were over, the judges chose the winners and also the second and third place finishers.

This year over 17 students participated in the event. The winners for the competition from COMM 145: Fundamentals of Public Speaking and Communication were: 1st place – Gabriella Alcott, 2nd place –Jacob Tipton and 3rd place – Micayla Kelly. The winners from COMM 145: Fundamentals of Public Speaking and Communication – Business and Professional Speaking were: 1st place – Krystin King, 2nd place – Olivia Little, and 3rd place – Brooke Payne.

This is a great opportunity for students to showcase their communication skills, and also give them experience in speaking in a public setting.
