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.
