2020 Regional Children, Youth, and High School Bible Drills and Student Speakers Competitions will be held via our remote/video plan:

  • Children’s Bible Drillers will participate in a State Drill at their local church with guidelines/materials provided by Georgia Baptist Bible Drill and Speakers Inc.  Churches have through May 31st to conduct the State Drill at their church and to submit the names, scores, and 3rd year Bible Drill award recipients to us. This deadline will be extended if needed.
  • Youth and High School Drillers will participate in their Regional Drill via video with guidelines/materials supplied by us to their church.  Bible Drill Leaders will submit a video of the drill to us for scoring. 
  • Speakers – Speeches will be submitted via video along with a copy of their written speech. Our judges will score it based 50% on delivery and 50% on written content.  There will only be one level of scoring for speakers. The speaker with the top score will be our State Winner.
