District 59 Contest Directive 

In the Toastmasters International Speech Contest Rulebook 2012, it is stated the following:

Eight weeks prior to the area contest, if an area has four assigned clubs or fewer, districts have the option to allow the two highest placed available contestants from each club to compete in the area contest.

1. Should additional clubs charter prior to the area contest, the two highest placed available contestants from each club are permitted to compete.

2. In those divisions with four assigned areas or less, districts have the option to allow the two highest placed available contestants from each area to compete.

3. In districts with four assigned divisions or less, districts have the option to allow the two highest placed available contestants from each division to participate in the district contest.

4. The decision whether or not to allow two contestants to advance from club to area, from area to division, and/or from division to district must be made and communicated throughout the district prior to the commencement of the contest cycle, i.e., prior to any club contests being held.

a) Once the decision is made, it must be implemented consistently throughout the district in all clubs, areas, and divisions affected.

b) If a district decides to allow two contestants to advance from club to area, its decisions regarding the number to advance from area to division and/or from division to district need not be the same.

In District 59 for 2012, the following has been decided:

  • in an area with 1 - 4 clubs the two highest placed contestants from each club can compete at area level
  • in a division with 1- 4 areas the 2 highest placed from each area can compete at division level
  • in our district with more than 4 divisions - only the 1 highest placed from each division can compete at district.
