The speech competition would not be possible without the help of Bergen’s faculty, administration and employees who serve as judges for the first and final rounds of competition.
For the first round of competition, there will be 2-3 judges in each competition room. These judges will coordinate the speaking order, manage the timing of speeches and give all necessary instructions to the student speakers. For the final round, there will be 5 judges who will help us decide the winners. These judges have been serving in this capacity for years and are experts on what makes a great speech!
- Students: to see how you will be scored in both rounds of competition, review the Judge’s Ballot.
