The 2022-23 Speech Contest Rulebook is available via this link:
Section 3B of the rulebook explains the number of contestants who qualify for the next level of the contests. At a District Council meeting in May 2015 it was decided that if an Area has four (4) or fewer assigned clubs in good standing, clubs can send the top two (2) winners from each club speech contest to compete at the area speech contest.
This means that the top two (2) placed contestants advance from the club contests in the Areas listed below to the Area Contests.
|D71 DIVISION||*AREAS THAT QUALIFY|

TO AREA CONTESTS
* 4 or fewer clubs
|C||C16, C19, C22|
|F||F9, F12, F27|

At a District Council meeting in May 2015 it was decided that if a Division has four (4) or fewer assigned Areas, Areas can send the top two (2) winners from each club speech contest to compete at the Division speech contest.
All Divisions have four or fewer Areas, and therefore all Divisions will accept the top 2 placed contestants from each of their Areas.
Each of the 12 Divisions will send the top placed contestant to compete in the District Finals at the District Contest at the May Conference.
Division Directors, please complete the Notification of Contest Winners form after each contest: https://www.toastmasters.org/Resources/Notification-of-Contest-Winner and email the completed form to the Program Quality Director at: firstname.lastname@example.org
