My Toastmasters District, District 15, has a special award for earning.....awards. If you get three educational awards inside of six months (?) you get the Triple Crown award. All my awards are within a couple months, but were entered on on the same day. Either way, I earned my Triple Crown.
I've made fun of the award in the past, but I get how the Triple Crown might help motivate people to get out there and finish up some loose educational award requirements. I know it has motivated me to try and work towards an extra award as my Competent Leader award from this Triple Crown is my second overall.
|Toastmasters International Competent Leader Award|
|Toastmasters International Advanced Communicator Bronze Award|
|Toastmasters International Advanced Communicator Silver Award|
In order to earn my ACB I completed 10 speeches, 5 from the Specialty Speeches manual and 5 from the Special Occasion Speeches manual.
To finish my ACS I had to complete another 10 speeches, but this time I worked out of the Storytelling and Speaking to Inform manuals.
