A Contestant competes in a contest. There are a variety of rules as to who may compete in a contest. For example, the winner of the World Champion of Public Speaking is restricted from thereafter competing in International Speech Contests.

A Contestant is required to have completed six manual speeches in order to compete in the International Speech Contest. A Contestant will also have to be a member in good standing in order to appear in a contest.

A Contestant may be disqualified for certain reasons described in the Speech Contest Rulebook.

A Contestant may compete in a Club Contest. The winner of a club contest may go on to an Area Contest. Normally only one member of a club will appear at an Area Contest but the runner-up in a contest may appear at a higher level if the winner is not available. In rare circumstances where an Area has few clubs, the District may authorize more than one contestant per club.
