Dear members of the Hong Kong public speaking community,
We are pleased to announce that Trials for the Hong Kong WIDPSC Team will be taking place on January 7, 2023. After the success of last year, we look forward to writing the next chapter of our WIDPSC Team!
In light of the updated covid regulations in Hong Kong, this year’s open selection trials will be held in-person, at Diocesan Boys’ School. Students and teachers attending the selection trial will need to comply with the Vaccine Pass requirements as mandated by the government.
For all the information about the Trials, WIDPSC speaking categories and more, please refer to the PDF leaflet attached. Please pay particular attention to speech times, which have been modified to best facilitate the schedule and effectiveness of the Trials.
The registration link is below. Given the time it takes for the students to prepare, we have allowed for nearly a month for registration to be completed before December 12: https://forms.gle/CyrBAr7psMvTAEM99
In order to facilitate the Trials, a registration fee of $50 will be collected from each competitor. Further details about payment will be forwarded after your registration is confirmed. Please keep an eye out for updates with further information about logistics on the competition day.
As with previous years, the top 10 speakers from the Trials will secure spots in the Hong Kong Team. This year, there will also be a new opportunity for students to qualify for the Team. Pending availability, students who have participated in the Trials can also apply to compete in Australasians 2023, against students from Korea, China and Australia, held between Jan 27-29, 2023. The top two Hong Kong students from Australasians will also join the Hong Kong Team.
We look forward to seeing competitors sign up and finally experiencing in-person speeches. Building on the excellent results last year, we are ready to showcase the best of Hong Kong public speaking!
