Public Speaking Symposium

Public Speaking Symposium
Hosted by Local Toastmasters and 4-H

Does standing before a group seem a little intimidating? If you answered yes, then you need to take advantage of the public speaking symposium. The past couple of years, we have offered an 8 week session of Toastmasters, but this year we are offering a 3 day camp. By participating in this course, students will learn to deliver great presentations, easily lead teams and conduct meetings, give and receive constructive evaluations and learn to be a better listener.

August 19-21, 2008
Location: Texas Capitol (if you would like to meet at the Extension Office, we have a van to take participants to the Capitol and back to the office to be picked up in the afternoon)
Cost: $30.00 (includes lunch and snacks for the three days)
Age Requirement: must be at least 12 years old the day the camp starts (open to the first 20 registrants)
9:00 a.m. start time (If meeting at the office, you will need to be here by 8:15a.m.)
End time: 4:30 p.m.

On Thursday night, a graduation ceremony will be held for participants and their families at the California Pizza Kitchen at The Domain Mall. This will be dutch treat.

You must register for this course. Please email Cory at or call
512/854-9600 by August 8, 2008.

If funding will be an issue, please contact Cory to discuss this matter further.
