Speech in Summer

Do speech competitors take a break over the summer? Of course, but there are plenty of ways to keep your skills sharp in the off-season. The long, hot summer days provide a perfect opportunity for:

  • Reading by the pool for an interp speech or Mars Hill

  • Researching at your local library or online for a platform speech

  • Volunteering for your favorite cause and gaining personal experience for a convincing Persuasive speech

  • Watching NITOC Finals video recordings

  • Reviewing your NITOC ballots for ideas on how to improve your future speeches

  • Practicing articulation drills and continuing other speech exercises

  • Watching movies with friends from the 2022–2023 Mars Hill list (available soon!)

  • Poring over apologetics books

  • Keeping up to date on the news for Extemp

Check next month's StoaByte for a summary of Apologetics and Mars Hill changes for the 2022–2023 season.
