Script: As Special Olympics athletes, you know that it takes a lot of hard work and preparation to get ready for a competition. You need to think about getting ready for giving a presentation as a similar experience. In order to see how speech preparation is similar to preparing for an event, we are going to pretend that we are getting ready for a bowling competition. Prepare a flip chart that will be used to record the participants responses. Let’s think about what needs to happen before we can compete in a event. What is the first thing we need to do? Responses should include: Sports coach registers the team with the state Special Olympics office and select the appropriate equipment. When we prepare a speech we call this RESEARCH. The next step is to prepare for our competition. How do you prepare for a competition? Responses should include: Practice for 8 weeks. When we prepare a speech we call this stage WRITING. Now that we have prepared we are ready for competition. Can someone tell me what you do when you get ready to throw the bowling ball down the lane? Responses should include: Pick up bowling ball, square up on the marks, and raise the ball. This is what we call the OPENING. Finally, we release the ball. Does anyone know how to do that? Responses should include: Take 3 steps, swing arm and release the ball. As the ball goes down the lane and knocks over the pins we see how many pins fall. This is what we call our CLOSING. Finally we write down our score. This is what we call an EVALUATION. Now that we have talked about the how we work towards a successful bowling competition we should think about how that is similar to preparing for a presentation. What do you think is the RESEARCH stage of getting ready for a presentation?

Responses should include: Speech Coach or Global Messenger Coordinator arranges a presentation and the target market is define. Now that we have prepared we need to think about the WRITING stage. What do you think falls into this category? Responses should include: Speech is written and practiced. Get Special Olympics banner, video and select appropriate dress. The next stage of our speech is the OPENING. Can you tell me what happens in this section? Responses should include: Do introductions, welcome, and tell the audience what you are there to speak about. Now comes the core of our speech which is called the BODY. What do you think should be included in this section? Responses should include: Give Special Olympics facts, information about you, target market selling points, and watching a video. The next stage of our speech is the CLOSING. This is an important part of our speech because we want to make an impressionable finish. What would you say during the closing? Did you ask if the audience had any questions? Responses should include: Say thank you, and ask the audience “Who has the first question?” and “Who has the last question?” It is also during the CLOSING that you pass out any materials you have brought with you such as: business cards, brochures and sign-up sheets. Much like you see how successful you were in your bowling competition by counting the number of pins and writing down the score, when you give a speech you do an EVALUATION. An evaluation is when you review your presentation with your Speech Coach. You ask questions such as: “Did I include the selling points?” or “Was my opening catchy?” “How can I improve my presentation next time?” Remember that preparing for a presentation is very much like preparing for a Special Olympics competition. It may seem scary at first but I know you can do it! Ask the Global Messengers if they have any questions and review the parts of the speech process.
