On October 25, 2023, District 11 leadership received the following clarification from Toastmasters International as to the meaning of the following phrase in the Speech Contest guidance.

  1. Original Guidance:

If desired, your District may choose to record an in-person, online, or hybrid speech contest with only contestants and contest officials and play the recording during the District Conference to help prevent bandwidth issues that may arise when live streaming a contest with a large audience. Also, if all contestants of a hybrid speech contest select to be in person, the contest officials may be in person as well.”

  1. 10/25 Clarification:

[The highlighted bold section above] “is true for contests above club levels. If all contestants in a hybrid contest choose to be in person, it can be held like an in-person contest. This decision should be made freely by each contestant without the influence of the District.”
