Persuasive Sales Pitch Speech
You are to assume that we (your audience) are interested in taking a vacation somewhere in the U.S. Your job is to persuade us to take our vacation to the US state that you represent. Remember, persuasion is not only about what you say, but also how you say it. You should be enthusiastic about your state and demonstrate that through your upbeat delivery. Have fun, but remember to still be professional and take your state seriously. YOU HAVE AN ASSIGNED, NOT OPTIONAL, US STATE!

4-6 minutes. Up to 15 seconds over 1 of 2 pts. 16+ seconds over 0 of 2 pts. -1 point off for EVERY 15 seconds UNDER in time. You are expected to have, at minimum, TWO SEPERATE props/visual aids (you may use more if you choose.) These items should be appropriate for classroom use (i.e. nothing dangerous, messy, or illegal). The computer/projector will NOT be available for use (and NO you cant bring in or use your own.) NO using a phone/tablet/computer to show pictures or videos. NO writing or drawing on the board. NO playing any music, video, or sound. Acceptable visual aids must be TANGIBLE & include: a hard-copy picture (ideally these will be in color but black & white is fine, make them large enough that we can easily see them = full 8 by 11 size), an object, a diagram, a poster board, a model/replica, etc. You must pick up & interact with your visual aid to earn credit. If it just sits there and you dont interact with it, you will earn no credit for it. You are to show your presentational aid in the BODY of the speech, not during the intro or conclusion. No passing handouts/pictures around. Each visual aid should be held up and displayed only when you are discussing it. You should interact with it for a FULL 5-10 seconds so that everyone in the room can see/understand it. If you show it too quickly you will not earn full credit.

*You are required to use AT LEAST TWO separate outside sources to boost your credibility while writing this speech (you may use as many sources as necessary.) I suggest having one source for each main point. Websites/online resources are considered acceptable sources for this assignment. However, NO dictionary (online or print) NO encyclopedia/ Wikipedia/ Wiki how, etc. Those sources will NOT count for credit. You must turn in a citation page of all sources used. You may use MLA or APA format. 2 points off for no works cited/references page. You must then create an oral citation for EVERY source used. This is where you cite each source OUT LOUD, DURING your presentation. You will simply say According to then state the name of the author, then say the title of the article/book/magazine/website/video etc. and then quote or paraphrase the information used. Do NOT cite pictures as your sources. Content/research is required. IF YOU DO NOT INCORPORATE ANY SOURCES IN YOUR SPEECH YOU WILL EARN 5 POINTS OFF OF YOUR GRADE.

This is the outline format I will expect you to follow for your speech. You are required to fill out this outline in TYPED, COMPLETE SENTENCES and turn it in immediately BEFORE you speak. Essentially, you are writing your speech out in its entirety. I will not put a limit on what you may use to present. Dont forget to include your works cited/references page!

Introduction
I. Attention Getting Opener. (Get our attention and get us interested about the state that you represent. You could tell us some interesting facts about your state, paint a mental picture of the beauty of your state, or describe something to help us visualize what your state is all about.)

2. Tell the audience what topic you are speaking about (what state you are persuading us to vacation to) and preview your 2-3 main points (Tell us what 2-3 pieces of information about the state you are going to inform us about. This could include: tourist destinations, attractions, regions of the state, events happening in the state, museums to see, places to eat, resorts to stay, things to do in different cities or any mixture of the above. Money is no object. Feel free to take a specific focus such as: family friendly vacation, budget friendly for students, historical sites, natural wonders of the state etc. Be creative and have fun!

Transition sentence previewing your first main point: Signal to the audience the end of the introduction and the beginning of the body of the speech. (e.g. First of all, Lets first look at, Lets start by looking at)

Body: SHOW YOUR MINIMUM 2 VISUAL AIDS IN THE BODY & HAVE MINIMUM 2 ORAL CITATIONS!
Transition: Remind us what Main Point #1 is. (e.g. First of all)
1. Support/discuss main point Main Point #1

Transition: Remind us what Main Point #2 is. (e.g. Second, Next)
2. Support/discuss main point Main Point #2

Conclusion
1. Re-cap your topic and main points.

2. Concluding remarks/final comments. Give us some parting statements encouraging us to book our vacation to your state. Simply saying the end or thank you does NOT count as concluding remarks. This is your last chance to really sell it! Dont end on a dud!
