First, you need a volunteer to coordinate the event. Click on the “Chapters” in the upper left of the page to find a chapter contact in your area. You might find a volunteer ready and waiting!
Next, you need to consult with the school’s teachers and administrators to get their approval, pick a date, and familiarize yourself with the categories.
Then you need to know the rules (for the Official Concours Rules click here):
- How long are the speeches
- What kinds of topics are allowed
- How are competitors evaluated, and more!
Use our 2016 How to Concours document to help you out with a timeline and organization.
You need to find judges, organize a space, and then promote, promote, promote!
