Sample Contest Agendas: Evaluation and Humorous Speech

These are sample agendas you can use for a club contest where you want to give members an opportunity to sign up online. Copy the text from either of the examples below. Before pasting it into the editor, make sure the WordPress editor is in “Text” mode rather than “Visual.”

When you toggle back to Visual mode, you will see the placeholder images representing the roles and agenda notes, allowing you to edit them further with the popup editor windows.

The evaluation contest form below, viewed in the WordPress editor’s Visual mode.

The idea here is that each of these contests would be the centerpiece of a separate meeting, and we’re estimating how much time will be required for each phase of the contest. For the evaluation contest, we need to provide for a guest speaker or “test speaker” whom the contestants will evaluate. Since that will be a person from outside of the club, we’re included an editable field where the details about that speaker can be filled in once that person is identified.
