Youth Services/ Youth Speaks 2010
Fri 26th February 2010 at 12.00 am - 2.00 am
Held at Claverham Community College
Bexhill/Battle Rotary Youth Speaks 2010
Postponed due to the snowfall which closed Claverham Community College two weeks earlier, Rotary Youth Speaks finally took place last week.
Youth Speaks is an inter schools public speaking competition organised annually by the Rotary Clubs of Battle and Bexhill and taking part were teams from St Richard's Catholic College, Battle Abbey School and this year's hosts, Claverham Community College.
Unfortunately De Lage Waard School from the Netherlands, who were due to take part and had come to Battle for the original date, were unable to return but provided a video of their excellent presentation.
The competition was divided into two age groups: 11 to 13 years of which there were four teams and 14 to 17 years with five teams competing.
Each team, comprising a chairperson, a speaker and a proposer of vote of thanks, chose their own subject and the range was fascinating and diverse including such things as" The History of Coca Cola"," Mayan Predictions", "Childhood Health and Safety" and "We Can Text But Can We Talk?".
There were three adjudicators: President Elect of Battle Rotary Club Michael Hodge MBE (Chairman), Caroline Sherrard and Toby Hufford and the timekeeper was Paula Batt who judged each team on such criteria as their ability to present and develop their argument, the management of their presentation, the quality and courtesy of the vote of thanks, the way a question from the floor was answered and their timekeeping. The Master of Ceremonies was Past President of Bexhill Rotary Club Richard Caie.
Before he announced the results Michael Hodge said
