Public speaking competition returns to Pierce after last year’s success

The annual Speech Tournament, initiated last year by Michelle Silver, professor of communications at Pierce, will take place again this year on May 30, 2014 in the Village Room 8342.

According to Silver, all current Speech 101 students can compete and have a chance to win cash prizes and students can also earn extra credit by just attending the Speech Tournament.

The Speech Tournament will be in two categories: informative and persuasive speaking. First place winners will get a chance to win $200, while the second and third place winners will win $100 and $75 respectively.

Silver advises students to check with their speech class instructors about obtaining extra credit for their courses.

This is the second annual Speech Tournament at Pierce. According to Silver, last year’s was a success, with hundreds of students participating in the event.
