On September 30, Toastmasters and members of the general public gathered at the Peace Memorial Hall to witness the local leg of these two contests.

Of the three participants in the Humorous Speech category, Toastmaster Jacinta Thomas-Elliott emerged as the winner, with Toastmaster Keisha Johnson winning second place. Four participants entered the Evaluation Contest, and Toastmaster Ruth-Ann Richards won the judges favour, with Toastmaster Simonique Jack-Benn taking second position.

The winners will now travel to Grenada for the finals of the two contests, which will take place on Saturday, October 20, during the District 81 Conference. They will compete against Toastmasters from throughout the Caribbean in their bid to be declared Caribbean champions of evaluation and of humorous speaking.
