Off-the-cuff remarks sometimes lead to prizes

Big Bear Lake, CA, May 10, 2013 – A member of Big Bear’s award-winning Toastmasters Club, Bearly Speaking, has won a division-wide Speech Contest. Terri Schauer will now represent part of the Inland Empire at a “Table Topics” competition at Pechanga Resort  & Casino in Temecula on May 18th. The contest judges a speaker’s ability to answer a question on the spot and deliver a 1- to 2-minute speech. Schauer has won at the club, area and division levels by creating an impromptu speech on questions ranging from the Great Recession to books becoming obsolete and the purpose of life. Those interested in improving their own public speaking skills are welcome to stop by Bearly Speaking Toastmasters, a President’s Distinguished Club. Meetings are the first and third Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at Keller Williams Realty, 42149 Big Bear Boulevard at the corner of Fox Farm Road in Big Bear Lake.  Please enter through the glass door off the outside deck and go upstairs to the conference room.

High school speakers compete on important topics

Big Bear Lake, CA, February 25, 2013 – The Big Bear Branch of the American Association of University Women is partnering with Bearly Speaking Toastmasters to present the second annual Eleanor Stem Allen Memorial Speech Contest. This year’s topic is “Sexual Harassment in Schools…big deal?” and is open to all high school students. The speakers compete for cash prizes, and the contest –also known as Speech Trek – has served as a stepping stone for past students. The winner of last year’s inaugural contest, Elizabeth Johnson, went on to capture 5th place at the State level. Her presentation on “Bullying” earned an additional cash prize for her and statewide recognition to the Big Bear Valley. The contest will be held on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at Keller Williams Realty (42149 Big Bear Blvd, at the corner of Fox Farm Road).  Admission is free and refreshments will be served. For more information, call Speech Trek Chair Marlene Cain at (909)...
