How to Prepare for Communications Day!

What is Communications Day?
Communication Day is a great opportunity for those interested in public speaking. There are four different categories that cover everyone’s interests and talents.
Educational Presentations:  You have the opportunity to give a presentation about something that interests you.  You can give a presentation on just about anything!
Working Exhibits:  These are audience interactive and demonstrate or teach directly to a small group.  The audience participates in a “hands-on” activity and takes home the item they made with you.
Extemporaneous Speaking:  This contest gives you the opportunity to choose a topic and prepare a speech in thirty minutes to give to a judge.  If you’re good at last minute preparation, this contest may be for you!
Poster:  Communicate in a visual rather than an oral form. Choose from one of this year’s themes and get creative
For more information on one of the specific classes, view the Fairbook.
