This tip is thanks to Mark Ray from

Go to enough Eagle courts of honor, and you’ll eventually see someone skip his lines in the script or read someone else’s lines by mistake. That’s no surprise considering that few Scouters are public speakers by profession.

A simple way to minimize such problems is to create a color-coded master script and place it on the lectern in a three-ring binder. How can you color-code your scripts? If you have access to a color printer, you can assign font colors in your word processor. Or, you can buy a multi-pack of highlighters and colorize your black-and-white printout.

You don’t have to highlight every single word, by the way; just highlighting the presenters’ names is probably enough. In fact, that’s probably preferable since reading heavily highlighted text can be difficult.
