Humorous Speech Contest

Speaking with humour is a great skill. Every year clubs across the district hold a humorous speech contest. There are three further rounds: area contests, division contests and the district final.

The criteria are those for any good speech. The additional task for the speakers is to give a speech with a message that is presented with humour.

Note: The reason why there is no entry for 2018 in the table, was due to the District Humorous speech contest being moved from November 2018, to May 2019.
