Spring 2021 ModernBrain Awards! (Limited Prep)

  • As the old saying goes, most people would rather be in the casket than deliver the eulogy. Public speaking is terrifying. For many, the scariest sort of performance is one where you can’t prepare. These Limited Preparation categories challenge students to think on their feet. Whether it’s Spontaneous Argumentation (only one minute to think), Impromptu Speaking (two minutes to prepare a five-minute speech), or Extemporaneous Speaking (30 minutes to prepare a research-driven seven-minute oratory), our ModernBrain students challenged themselves to excel. 
  • During Spring of 2021, our students kept proving that they can amaze judges--regardless of how long they have to prepare.
