Outline Guidelines

For Original pieces (i.e. speeches and stories), one (1) typed copy of the outline must be submitted. For non-original pieces, or for more information about requirements, please refer to Entries.

“There are three things
to aim at in public speaking:
first, to get into your subject, then
to get your subject into yourself,
and lastly, to get your subject
into the heart of your audience.”
— Alexander Gregg

Entrants should not underestimate the contribution of proper grammar and punctuation, and cogent content flow and/or narrative arc, to the overall adjudication.

Speech

Magnum Opus upholds the use of Standard Outline Form, but does not require it, as long as the outline includes, in some reasonable approximation, these main areas.
