Youth Speaks 2018 winners The Perse School who subsequently went on to win our District final - well done!

The Perse School

Cambridge Rutherford's Youth Speaks Sixth Form Public Speaking Competition 2018 was held at The Leys, Cambridge on 21 November and kindly sponsored by Barr Ellison LLP.

Judges were Nichola Harrison (Chair), former Cambridgeshire County Councillor; Chris Elliot, former Readers' Editor, Guardian Newspaper and Emma Truin,  Partner, Barr Ellison LLP.

The Perse with their topic 'Are FAANG companies sucking the life out of society?' (FAANG = Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) were judged winners of a very high standard competition with all teams congratulated by Nichola Harrison in her summing up of the results. 

The Perse School winning team (pictured above) were presented with the Richard Crabtree Trophy, named in memory of Rutherford's late Past-President, by Duncan Mackay President of Cambridge Rutherford.
