What is Extemp?
Do you stay up-to-date on the news? Do you prefer speaking off the top of your head, rather than memorizing a speech? If so, extemporaneous speaking might be for you!
There are two types of extemporaneous speaking: United States, and International. The only difference is whether your speech will focus on the U.S. or other countries around the world. For both types, you will draw three current events questions and choose one. Then, you have 30 minutes to prepare and present a 7-minute speech answering the question, using news articles and other materials that you have researched and saved in advanced.
