Candidates can record and upload their videos from their smart phones in the comfort of their homes if they choose to. No high tech camera equipment needed, though welcomed.
5 How it Works • “The only required venue appearances will be in the months of November Regionals and January Gala. Candidates who make it to the Regionals will speak at prestigious venues of former US Presidents, and candidates who make it to the finals will give the Historical annual “State of the American Address”. • Each candidate is required to upload at least one speech for every round. That speech will be graded by a mix of popular vote and a judges panel. • Popular Vote – The amount of individual votes generated by a candidate’s following • Judges Panel – Professional appointed members of the League who will judge speeches based on contest rules. Each round will highlight a new topic that is announced at the beginning of the respective rounds. The speeches are judged on the insight candidates share about the specified topic.
