June 24 – Another Try for a Contest!

Posted on 25 April 2010 by IgniteBC

Okay, so the last contest didn’t really happen.  Sorry about that, and believe me I was thoroughly disappointed that it don’t go off as planned.  Not a lot of people got there early enough, and… well… better luck next time.

Well, the next time has been planned, and this contest will be something that EVERYONE can participate in, if they are so inclined.  Here’s a quick overview of what we have planned:

Given that Ignite Events are all about public speaking, we’re going to have a challenge that is somewhat consistent to the overall program – that is, we will give all contestants a passage to read up on stage.  The passage will be exactly the same for everyone.  The person that can read the most number of words – without making a mistake in ten seconds – will win a prize.

But, there’s a catch:  (ah yes… there is ALWAYS a catch, isn’t there?)

The passage that you will read will be a very complex and difficult tongue twister.

Good thing we’re doing this at the beginning of the night, eh?
