Celebrate oratory online
We’ll be holding Zoom events in a range of time zones from Tuesday 17 May to Friday 27 May, 2022. If you’re between the ages of 5 and 18, you can enter our friendly competition by reading the words of great writers in Poetry Recital from Memory, Prose Reading or Solo Acting. Or wow us with your original oratory in our public speaking categories Sharing with an Audience, Presenting an Argument, Speaking to Inform or Impromptu.
Debbie Newman and Alison Coates, Chief Judges
We have seven exciting categories which you can enter. Each one enables you to share your skills in a different area of oratory, from reading great words by established authors to presenting your own thoughts.
