This would make a nice project for politically minded individuals.

I am very interested in BCing this project. I believe we have a max number of sections per completed project. Does anyone know what that number is?

It's 255.

How many "state of the union" addresses are there per year? :lol:
Cheers,
Ava.

There is generally one a year. 1790 seems to have two.

about 225 speeches over the years including Obama

Great. So sections won't be a problem. I'll probably still break it down into volumes. Is there a time limit on final projects? Some of the speeches are rather long.

I don't know about time limits other than I was advised to get a project done in a year. You'll have to talk to an administer. It is sure longer than I thought it would be.
