Fifth Annual Cicero Speech Contest

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
6 PM
Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

The Cicero Speech Contest strives to promote a speaking culture at Barnard where speaking is an intellectual expression and powerful tool for advocacy; where speaking well is valued, evaluated, and rewarded; where students use opportunities such as this event to voice issues which matter to them and affect real change; and where Barnard students hone and employ their voices for transformation.

This year, the contest will be opened by President Sian Beilock! There will be two speech categories: Persuasive Advocacy (5 minutes) and Impromptu (3 minutes). Judging panels will comprise distinguished faculty, deans, and alumnae. There will be a small prize for each category.

This event is free and open to the public.
