A local Toastmasters veteran cleaned up at the recent international and evaluation competitions.

Tim Thomas, who’s been in Toastmasters for 18 years, won the area International Speech Contest and the Evaluation Competition here March 15.

The International Speech contest builds from the club level all the way to the Toastmasters International convention.

Thomas has previously won the club level competition and with his area win, he will go on to the division competition April 12 in Prince George. A win there would send him to the district contest in Vancouver, and another win means a trip to the convention in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The area contest results are below.

International speech contest – 1st Tim Thomas (Terrace), 2nd Reg Barnes (Kitimat),  3rd Trever Morris.

Evaluation contest – 1st Tim Thomas (Terrace), 2nd Reg Barnes (Kitimat), 3rd Eleanor Kendall (Kitimat).
