A Bachelor’s degree is required for the K-12 classroom presentations, but anyone with expert knowledge in the presentation’s area can become a Speaker. Presentations should run approximately 45 minutes, with 15 minutes allowed for Q&A. Delaware Humanities will pay a small honorarium for your appearance.
