Dear members of the Hong Kong public speaking community,
We would like to thank you for participating in the 2021 Junior Individual Public Speaking Championships 2021. In the last three weeks, judges across Hong Kong have tirelessly assessed recorded speeches and readings. This was followed on the morning of May 1st, 2021 by an exciting live round of impromptu speaking, culminating in the final rounds. Many outstanding performances were delivered, and we were delighted to see the passion speakers put into every speech they gave.
After heated competition at the Finals, the winners of the individual events are:
Persuasive Speaking – Christine Lam (HKIS)
Interpretive Reading – Jaden Yeung (DBS)
Impromptu Speaking – Lauren Lee (CDNIS)
Overall Top Speaker – Mark Lee (DBS)
A hearty congratulations to the winners and the top speakers of the tournament!
Appended to this post are the top speakers in each of the 3 categories. The individual ballots with scores and feedback are currently being compiled, and will be ready to share by next week.
Before we sign off, we also would like to extend a special thank you to every judge who helped make this event special for every participant. As part of the continuing legacy of public speaking in Hong Kong, we look forward to seeing everyone in our future events, especially the Team Trials scheduled for January 2022.
The Organizing Committee
