THE HONORABLE JOHN R. TUNHEIM ANNUAL REALTIME SPEED CONTEST
Friday, October 7, 2015

Make your plans now to join other reporters while you attend great seminars with knowledgeable speakers, earn continuing education credits, spend some time surrounded by beautiful hillsides and show off your writing skills. We want to see YOU participating in the annual realtime speed contest in Park City.

The USCRA Board of Directors has approved a prize of $300 for the highest scoring test that qualifies with the requisite score. The first place qualifier will also take home the contest’s traveling trophy to display in your home or office for one year.

The Realtime Speed Contest is five minutes of recorded two-voice Q&A material at 230 words per minute. A score of 96% accuracy is required to qualify. Candidates who qualify may be eligible to receive .4 CEUs from NCRA (allowed once per three-year CEU cycle). The top three contestants are recognized at the Saturday evening activities.

Entry fee is $50. USCRA membership and a convention registration of at least one day are required to compete. Watch for convention details to come. For more information, e-mail Brenda Fauber, Reporter Testing Committee Chair, at fcrr.uscra@gmail.com.
