  • YOU MUST READ TO SUCCEED!!

    Each contestant must present selection(s) in BOTH categories--A and B.  

    The categories have different themes and different rules.

    Both categories have a time limit of 7 minutes or less.  

    2018-2019 CATEGORY THEMES:

         A:  EXAMINING OUR CHANGING WORLD

                       Takes an insightful look into our world of 2018-19 as it changes/has changed in recent years.  This applies to a variety of possible changes:  values, judgements; social issues; educational issues; national issues; minority issues; personal relationships; morality; community values; etc.  The literary selections should address these issues and INFORM the audience about them.

         B:  TAKING A STAND

                        The literary selections take a look at the same or similar issues as in Category A, BUT, instead of informing the audience, they TAKE A STANCE on the issue(s).  The selections would be somewhat PRO/CON, so to speak.
