If you’re between the ages of 6 and 18, you can enter our friendly competition by reading the words of great writers in Poetry Recital from Memory, Shakespeare Sonnet, Prose Reading or Solo Acting. Or wow us with your original oratory in Your Original Poetry, as well as our public speaking categories Presenting an Argument, Speaking to Inform or Impromptu. This year, we’ve also added a News Report category.
