2018-2019 INYO COUNTY SPEECH CONTEST
sponsored by Bishop Real Estate

The 59th Annual Inyo County Speech Contest will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at Jill Kinmont Boothe School at 5:00pm. The topic for this year’s contest is: How could lessons learned from historical examples of tragedy and triumph be applied to decisions we make every day? In conjunction with Bishop Real Estate, Inyo County Office of Education sponsors this contest for students in grades 6-8. The goal is to cultivate effective public speaking skills, create confidence and an earned sense of achievement and leadership. Each year we offer insightful topics that make for an exciting and thoughtful experience for all involved.

Students from all school districts in Inyo County are eligible to participate in the competition. Each school holds their own Speech Contest where one or two winning students are selected to compete in the Inyo County Speech Contest. Trophies and monetary scholarships will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners, courtesy of Bishop Real Estate.

A panel of judges will critique the speakers and judge them on the basis of content, effectiveness, delivery, poise, presentation, and audience appeal. The public is encouraged to attend the Inyo County Speech Contest.
