Santa Barbara Toastmasters Carol Sauceda of the Whine and Dine Toastmasters Club and David Machacek of the Whitehatters Ovation Toastmasters Club won first place and third place in their respective categories at the Toastmasters Division E contest held March 29 in Los Olivos.

Sauceda won first place in the division's International Speech contest, and Machacek won third place in the division's Tall Tales Speech contest, competing against Toastmasters from clubs throughout the division, which covers Santa Barbara County and southern San Luis Obispo County.

Sauceda will go on to represent the division at the District Contest on May 3 in Oxnard.

Toastmasters clubs provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
