The contestant will present a non-original speech, portions thereof, or cuttings of various speeches by one “real life” speaker.
The intent of this event should be the analysis (not interpretation) of the oratory or speech. The speech should not be from fiction, but from an actual address by a person of significance either past or present. The contestant will analyze the oratory selection(s) for approximately 50% of the presentation.
The speech may be presented from memory or by use of a text.
