Division C Spring Online Contest 2020

9th of May we flowed with the virtual River of Words. The best speakers and the best evaluators from the Division C competed in contests in polish and english.

Originally, the competition was planned to take place in Bydgoszcz, a city in northern Poland with a beautiful waterfront along the Brda river. Coronavirus, like all over the world, has thwarted our plans too. But it didn’t cross them out. A brave team from Toastmasters Speakers’ Zone supported by members from others club from Division C prepared the space for the online event.

What did we need to make this contest successful?
