The Toastmasters International Speech Contest begins at the club level, and winners
continue competing through the Area, Division, District, and region quarterfinal levels. Following

All 28 contestants proceeding from region quarterfinals are randomly assigned to one of four semifinals.
Each semifinal round includes one contestant from each region. When region quarterfinal contestants are
