Creative Expression is a category which, as far as I know, is exclusive to the good old state of Minnesota. In Illinois, it takes on a different form known as Original Comedy. If it goes by different names in other states, please say so.
Creative Expression is a unique category in which the performer writes and performs his or her own piece. The tone can be humorous, dramatic, or a little bit of both. Personally, I think this is one of the most overlooked speech events in the country. If you come and watch a good Creative round (such as the 05-06 Eastview final round), it's amazing to find how funny some of these pieces can be.
Well, I've spoken my part. What do you think?
