The Youth Speech Competition provides an opportunity for students in grades 10, 11, and 12 to speak publicly and freely on a designated topic of general interest. 

The competition starts at the local club or school level and proceeds through several levels of competition ending several months later with a state wide competition. In between there are zone, region, and district levels of competitions where the  winner of each level has the opportunity to proceed to the next level.

The competition culminates with five statewide district winners vying for the title of BEST IN THE STATE at the annual MD33 State Convention.
