Welsh Youth Speaks final – Cystadleuaeth Siarad Cyhoeddus


Eight teams from across District 1150 gathered at Ty Hywel, Cardiff Bay for the final of the Welsh District Youth Speaks. All had qualified from earlier rounds.

The subjects covered by the teams were diverse and thought provoking – Football players salaries, ta ta to Christmas, devolution and the Welsh language – to name but a few. How the judges – Dr R. Alun Evans, Gethin Thomas and David Williams were able to adjudicate such excellent presentations, was indeed a difficult job

The presentations were excellent by all the teams

The winning team was Ysgol Gyfun Cymer Rhondda (sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rhondda). The team members were Seren Farrup (chairperson), Jenni Page (proposer), Evie Connolly (opposer). Seren also won the prize for best chairperson, Jenni was 2nd for best proposer. Evie won best opposer and best overall speaker

The 2nd team was Ysgol Gyfun Bro Myrddin (Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Carmarthem) and 3rd place was awarded to Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bryn Tawe (sponsored by the Rotary Club of Morriston)  

The event was sponsored by Adam Price AM, to whom we are extremely grateful.
