The North Texas Council (NTC) is seeking 5 Toastmaster judges for our 2014 Speech Contest on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 9:45 AM at the University of Texas at Arlington. NTC is a member of National Management Association (NMA)…THE Leadership Development Organization. Our local council, NTC, comprises of chapters from Alcatel-Lucent, Boeing, Lockheed Martin (2 chapters), and Rockwell Collins. The NTC contest will consist of the five first place winners from each of the chapters.
The NMA Leadership Speech Contest is open to students in grades 9-12 and is a unique opportunity to research, write, and present a 4-6 minute address to an NMA audience. The subject is Leadership; what it is, what comprises its attributes, who personifies your definition of a “leader”, or whatever else works its way into the students’ understanding of the subject. NMA chapters reach out to home-schooled students and area high schools to hold local contests.
NMA also reaches out to Toastmasters International to aid in the critical judging area and recommends that all levels of competition be judged by the members of that organization. All speeches must adhere to the general theme of Leadership and must be submitted to the contest director prior to each level.
