2020 International Speech Contest Semifinals

The Toastmasters International Speech Contest begins at the club level, and winners continue competing through the Area, Division, District, and region quarterfinal levels. Following region quarterfinals, the top two contestants from each region are invited to compete in the semifinals at the International Convention in Paris, France.

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 announced, they will be randomly assigned to round one or two.

The two first-placed contestants from each semifinal will compete in the World Championship of Public Speaking® for a chance to be named the 2020 World Champion.
