It has been decided by District that, for the 2019/20 year, if an area has only four clubs, then only one contestant from each club will be allowed to progress to area-level contests.

This is in reference to Contest Rule Book item 3B.

Please note the message below from Region Adviser, Coral McVean, which was received today and will impact on planning for Area Conferences.  

Lark has said that there will be an addendum to the Speech Contest Rule Book  re Area Contests which will start from when it is announced. The Board has not decided on what the change will be. The Board will meet after Convention so it may not happen until then.

Please be patient and don’t make any plans for judges for your Area Contests/ Conferences until the Board has announced its decision.
