Extemp Topic Areas for Spring 2021

The topic areas for Extemporaneous Speaking at FGCCFL tournaments in Spring 2021 have been released. These topic areas will be used, one per round, at the January and February tournaments and at Grand Finals. Topic areas may repeat from one tournament to another.

One notable development is the return of the political cartoon round. For the uninitiated, in such a round, contestants are given three political cartoons. They select one of them and then compose and answer their own question based on the cartoon. Contestants and judges alike find this format both challenging and fun. (The similar format using @realDonaldTrump tweets will not be returning, for obvious reasons.)
