I Proudly Represent
Here is an example of an ACT-SO opening introduction...
Good ([Morning, Afternoon or Evening]. My name is [NAME]. I am a [AGE] year old [GRADE] attending [SCHOOL NAME] in [CITY].
I proudly represent the New Brunswick Area Branch of the NAACP.
Today I will be [presenting, singing] a [WHAT, oratorical piece, a poem, a song, etc] entitled [NAME OF PIECE] written by [AUTHOR].
When you say your intro, make sure you articulate yourself in a manner which is going to grasp the attention of the judges. So you want to make sure you speak out loud, with your head tall. In essence, You are trying to pique the interest of everyone in the room before you even begin your presentation. With so many other students competing, your intro is a sure way for judges to remember YOU.
I've seen ACT-SO students who had GREAT performances not place because the judges thought their intros were terrible. I've also seen students with substandard performance place because their opening intro was strong. Never underestimate the power of our opening intro. It sets your stage. And when you represent your branch, represent is PROUDLY! There is a proud history and legacy where you come from.
Start now by getting into the habbit of practicing your ACT-SO intros daily.
