great event to participate in, for many
reasons. Not only is it a ton of fun, it is also
educational and contributory to one’s public
speaking and interview skills.
         Being with the other contestants
gives lots of opportunity for socializing, and
helps to lighten the mood and ease nervous
feelings about the competition.
         The more serious part of the
competition is the interview session. It is
normal to feel nervous going in, but as long
as you take a few deep breaths and relax,
the short process will be easy as pie!
         Writing and delivering a speech is
probably the most time consuming and
rewarding part of the contest. The more
energy you put into preparing and practicing
your speech, the more comfortable you will
feel when onstage. Make your speech your
own, practice, and it will be terrific!
