McClung Public Speaking Contest 2012

McClung contest

The McClung Public Speaking Contest hosted by the School of Communication Studies (CS) was held Nov. 15 at Alumni Memorial Building.  The contest is the largest of its kind held in the southeast and is funded by the Charles J. McClung Endowment.

The speeches are five to seven minutes in length and must be either informative or persuasive.  “The competition gives our students a chance to put into practice the skills they have learned in class,” said CS Director John Haas.  “It also gives them the opportunity to earn bragging rights which always looks nice on their resumes.”
