*Minnesota Experimental Event
Each year the schools of Minnesota select an experimental event to compete in for the Minnesota State Speech and Debate tournament. The Bethany Speech Team supports the Minnesota Collegiate Forensics Association by allowing students to compete in this event in a tournament other than the State tournament.
This year's event is Minnesota Informative: An original, factual speech on a subject relating to the history, culture, or industry of the state of Minnesota. The general aim is to inform the audience about an aspect of Minnesota within the 150 years of the state's existence. Audio-visual aids may or may not be used to supplement and reinforce the message. Multiple sources should be used and cited in the development of the speech. Notes/manuscripts may or may not be used. Maximum time limit is 7 minutes including introduction.
