Student speakers featured in bi-annual speech forum at IU Northwest

The Communication department at IU Northwest will host the bi-annual Speech Forum Saturday Dec. 3, 2005 beginning at 10 a.m. in Raintree Hall, room 102. Refreshments will be served immediately following the forum, which is free and open to the public.

Each year, select students enrolled in public speaking classes are invited to compete in a public speech forum, giving speeches on a pre-determined topic of cultural and/or social interest. In years past, students have spoken about civil rights, gun control, learning disabilities and religious freedom. Much time and research goes into the preparation of the speeches, which are generally 5-7 minutes in length. Students are judged on content, length of speech and delivery. A panel of judges chosen from the university and the community score the speeches and the top three students receive plaques.
