On May 6, 60 students participated in the live Impromptu Speaking round and Final Rounds of the 2023 Junior Individual Public Speaking Championships. This was preceded by video rounds for the Persuasive Speaking and Interpretive Reading categories in the weeks before. Many outstanding performances were delivered, and we were delighted to see the passion speakers put into every speech they gave.
Please find the top 10 speakers overall, and of each category, in the pictures below. A hearty congratulations to the winners and the top speakers of the tournament!
Before we sign off, we also would like to extend a special thank you to every judge who helped make this event a special and rewarding learning experience for every participant, tirelessly assessing recorded speeches and readings, and taking the time to write encouraging and constructive feedback. We look forward to seeing more budding public speakers at our future events, furthering their talents or even representing Hong Kong!
