Congratulations and thanks to everyone who helped with the Club Awesome speech contest

Congratulations to the winners in the Club Awesome Toastmasters speech contest and thank you to everyone who participated as a contestant or speaker.
Mike Caserta won in Table Topics with his response to the prompt “What is your best quality as a human being?” (turned out to be his sense of humor).
Matthew Cooper won with his International Speech Contest entry, “Have you fad enough?”
I enjoyed every one of the speeches. Thank you to everyone who volunteered for a role or participated as a judge. I know this is a busy time of the year, and I appreciate that you fit this into your schedule.
