Toastmasters is a non-profit international organization that helps build communication and leadership skills and self-confidence. There are thousands of clubs around the world. There is most likely one near you.
Twice a year each club has a speech contest. The winners go to the next level to compete in the area contest. Those winners go to the division contest. The next level is the district contest. After that it's regional, and finally international.
October 9, 2009, is the date of District 6's Eastern Division Speech Contest. For more information, see the flyer on the hyperlink in the previous sentence.
And the District 6 Toastmasters site, which covers all of Minnesota and part of Ontario.
