Speech Contest

Contest Rules:  

 

THEME:  “Natural Resources”

Participants may choose any current subject that deals with topics such as soil, water, air, rural water, wildlife, forestry, aquaculture, conservation, recreation, recycling, energy, environmental issues, agronomy, etc. The speaker must mention the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Conservation District by name. The purpose of the speech contest is to acquaint students with their conservation district and operations. Contest participants are encouraged to contact the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Conservation District to learn about the district.

DIVISIONS:  

Division I: Grades 8-9-10

Division II: Grades 11-12

 

TIME LIMITS

The speech must be 4-6 minutes in length. An official timekeeper, who may or may not be one of the judges, will time all speeches. A 5 point penalty will be deducted for speeches that go less than 4 minutes but more than 3 minutes and for speeches that go longer than 6 minutes but less than 7 minutes. Speeches less than 3 minutes or more than 7 minutes will be disqualified.

PROCEDURES

Speeches will be judged by a panel of judges individually scoring each speaker. Each judge will rank in order all contestants, highest score to lowest score. Then collectively, judges will add ranking scores to select the winner, lowest total ranking points wins the category. However, any contestant receiving a first place vote from two judges automatically wins. Scoring and potential points will include but not be limited to the following: content of manuscript, presentation of speech, organization and general effect.

In the event of a tie, judges will break ties in scoring by first collectively adding a contestant’s total points; the contestant with the highest score wins the tie. Should the tie continue, judges will collectively add a contestant’s total points in the “Delivery” portion of the score sheet, highest score wins the tie.

The outermost cover of the speech must list the following information in this order:

CONTEST DIVISION, MUSCOGEE (CREEK) NATION CONSERVATION DISTRICT, STUDENT’S NAME, STUDENT’S HOME ADDRESS, GRADE, SCHOOL NAME, SCHOOL’S ADDRESS, TEACHER OR SPONSOR’S NAME

 

Each speaker must provide four typewritten copies of the speech to the judge. This manuscript must be double-spaced and include a bibliography page. Three copies will be returned at the end of the contest. One copy will be retained in the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Conservation District files for a period of five years. Contestants will be penalized 2 points for failing to provide the correct number of copies.

The first and second place winners in each division from the local district contest are eligible to compete in the OACD area speech contest. Critique sheets will not be returned to the contestants except at the option of the individual judge.

Poster Contest

Contest Rules:

Any media may be used to create a flat or two-dimensional effect (paint, crayon, colored pencil, charcoal, stickers, paper or other materials) on regular posters.

Posters should be 14” x 22” (no larger – no smaller, not even by ½’) or they will be disqualified. This size is accommodating as it is a regular size sheet of poster board cut in half. Although it is recommended to use poster board, it is not mandatory. Poster contest winners will be entered into an area contest. Winners there may go on to a state and contest. All posters must be created by an individual student rather than a team of students. The current year’s title must be on the poster. 

2022 Contest Theme    -   "Healthy Soil, Healthy Life”

 

DIVISIONS

Division K – Kindergarten   Division 1 – First Grade  Division 2 – Second Grade  Division 3 – Third Grade

Division 4 – Fourth Grade  Division 5 – Fifth Grade Division 6 – Sixth Grade  Division 7 – Seventh Grade

Division 8 – Eighth Grade  Division 9 – Ninth Grade  Division 10 – Tenth Grade  Division 11 – Eleventh Grade

Division 12 – Twelfth Grade Division 13 – Special Education

 

Although younger students will most likely receive help in planning from the parents or teachers, it is encouraged that each student do as much of the work as possible by him/herself. Entries completed by students in their handwriting and coloring will score better than those designed, drawn and colored by adult assistance.

Each entry must have a completed, official NACD entry form, signed by a parent/guardian and must be attached to the back of the poster.

For questions or more information contact the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Conservation District at 918-549-2609.
