The Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking Competition heightens students' awareness of multicultural issues while developing their interest in public speaking and improving their confidence and speech-writing skills. The competition is open to years 3-6, with a junior and senior category.
For the competition, students present both a prepared speech and an impromptu speech. For their prepared speech, students must choose a topic from the list below. The impromptu speech will be chosen by the adjudicator on the day and will be on a general (not multicultural) theme. Contestants will have 5 minutes to write their impromptu speeches.
