Youth Speaks 2019
Inter-school public speaking competition
2019 Youth Speaks Competition
Eleven Hull and East Riding schools took part in this year’s competition held on 28th February at Wyke Sixth Form College. This provided an opportunity for teams of three to show off their public speaking skills, in a friendly but structured atmosphere before three judges and an audience of close to a hundred, parents, Rotarians, teachers and friends.
The Senior competition was won by Holderness Academy, speaking on ‘Baby Shark on our screens or in our home’. The Boulevard Academy were second and Baysgarth School (Barton) third. The winners received £400 for their school.
The Intermediate competition was won by Headlands School (Bridlington), with St Mary’s College second and Hymers College third. The winners also received £400. Headlands topic was ‘The importance of Challenge’.
In its 22nd year, 39 different schools and colleges have now taken part, and it was once again a great success with the standard very high. The winners went on to represent the Rotary District at the Regional finals in Grantham.
