Kids Speak Out Speech Contest
"Optimism – A Way of Life"
The Optimist Club of Huntsville holds an Oratorical Contest each year. The “Kids Speak Out” contest is a “Pre-Oratorical” program for kids through the age of eleven that provides a more equitable competition for our younger speakers.
The real test of this program is not who wins, but rather providing the opportunity for boys and girls to gain experience in speaking to an audience.
