The event invites GHC students to prepare and deliver a persuasive speech to an audience of fellow students, faculty, family, and friends. Many of our students learn basic public address theory and practice in our Human Communication course or Public Speaking course. Still, the performative art of speaking in public is one that requires significant practice in front of live audiences to master. To that end, our event is an opportunity for students to demonstrate speech preparation, verbal style, physical delivery, and to build experience in front of unfamiliar audiences.


This year, we are pleased to offer our top speakers prizes including checks for $150, $100, $75, $50, and $25, provided by the Rome Area Council for the Arts, gift cards for the GHC Bookstore provided by Follett, and GHC gear provided by GHC Student Life!
