    I prefer "Extempore Speech" or "Extempore Speaking" to "Extempore Talk". I am also confused. Is this the First Prize or a Certificate of Hono(u)r? I would expect the First Prize Certificate to state that more than anything else. I would expect a Certificate of Hono(u)r to be awarded to someone who didn't win a main prize but you wanted to give them some recognition.

    Having just seen one of BarbD's replies, I would like to add that I don't know about the use of "Extempore" as I don't indulge in public speaking contests! As BarbD said, would it actually be "Extemporaneous"?
