Division D Contest results!

The Division D contests were held on tonight (October 15) at McKesson in San Francisco.  The competition was fierce and, now, the results are in!

Tomas Pueyo is the 1st place winner for the Humorous Speech Contest!
His speech, "European Dis-Union", was full of hilarious insights (and maybe just a few sarcastic remarks) about the European Union and "old" Europe.  He'll be competing in the final level at the District Fall Conference on Nov 7th:

Congratulations to the master of feedback, Jason Okui, who won 2nd place in the Evaluation Contest!  His astute evaluation of a test speaker talking about going from "woe to wow" was detailed, organized and included thoughtful suggestions for improvement.

Great job!  So happy and proud of your accomplishments!
