Competitive speaking is an important co-curricular activity through which students are offered training and experience in developing their oral communication skills.
In intercollegiate forensics (speech/debate) there are two classes of competition: Debate and Individual Events.
Debate events include: Lincoln Douglas, Policy, and Parliamentary.
Individual events include: prose, poetry, screenplays, movie/radio scripts, and several types of platform speeches.
There are also two categories of what is called limited preparation: the student prepares the speech as part of the competition and has no idea about the topic until the scheduled event.
