Youth Speaks: A Debate

How to enter the Youth Speaks Competition


Teams of three in two age groups (11-13, 14-17) present arguments and points of discussion before taking questions from the judging panel, who are themselves skilled orators.  The participants can select a topic that is important to them giving them the opportunity to research, speak, formulate their ideas and build confidence.

If you want to take part, please fill out our enquiry form and we will point you in the right direction.
