To receive this award, candidates have to complete 25 engagements to community groups and corporations, varying in topic and purpose to include speeches that persuade, entertain, inform and motivate. After submitting and passing a taped presentation, candidates then deliver a live presentation before an audience and panel of five judges. Kai was the 45th speaker to earn this award.
