Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 10, 2010
These contests were started in 2008 by Lauren Davis, a certified corporate trainer who has an eye on setting our future workforce up for success in leadership. Past participants have found that this contest is not just about the prize money; each participant receives individual coaching and has the opportunity to demonstrate and hone leadership skills.
Participants may register at http://www.thepublicspeakingcontest.com. There are 16 spots available and registration for this contest closes on March 15th so please register now.
Participants will present a 2-5 minute speech on the topic "Haiti" in front of the PSC audience and a panel of four judges that have been selected from a pool of local professionals. Participants are limited only by their imagination and are encouraged to be creative. Lauren comments that she is excited that "we are starting to go beyond simple dictionary definitions with our speeches these days."
The winners of this contest will be eligible to compete for $1000 and the title of PSC ambassador at the end of the season.
The competition will be held on March 22, 2010 at 6pm at Woodridge Neighborhood Library (1801 Hamlin St. NE Washington DC 20018)
