Women's History Month | Speech Contest: submission period

February 28, 2023 March 10, 2023

The Cerritos College speech and debate (forensics) team is excited to announce its Women's History Month Speech Contest for Cerritos College students!

Students will compose a speech that addresses the theme for Women's History Month: "Providing Healing, Promoting Hope." Students' speeches may be either informative or persuasive in nature. In other words, speakers may focus on educating the audience about an important topic related to the theme, or they may focus on advocating for change on a topic related to the theme. Students may interpret the theme as creatively as they wish.

The submission period is now open to Cerritos College students. Students of all majors may participate. To review the speech guidelines and enter the contest, visit the submission form and submit a recorded video no later than March 10, 2023.

Six finalists will be chosen to present their speeches in person in front of a VIP panel of judges at Cerritos College. The final round will be held March 23, 2023 from 4:00pm-5:30pm. Finalists will compete for one of three cash prizes:

  • First place: $200
  • Second place: $150
  • Third place: $100
