We are pleased to announce that Trials for the Hong Kong WIDPSC Team will be taking place on November 11, 2023, at St Paul’s Co-educational College. After the success of last year at Durban, South Africa – securing 3 out of the Top 20 Speaker spots – we look forward to writing the next chapter of our WIDPSC Team!
To ensure sufficient training time for the team, we have moved the trials to earlier in the school year (from January to November) and hopefully this will also be able to accommodate for diverse examination schedules in Hong Kong schools.
For all information regarding 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 since last year to best facilitate the schedule and effectiveness of the Trials.
The registration link is below. Please register by October 23 (Mon): https://forms.gle/APQGet9Rpasmv6FJ6
In order to facilitate the Trials, a registration fee of $100 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. Two additional reserve speakers will be offered a spot to train with the Hong Kong Team, with a potential chance of competing in WIDPSC 2024, subject to organisers’ discretion and competitor quotas.
We look forward to your registration and cannot wait to hear the young voices of our public speaking circuit. Building on the excellent results last year, we are ready to showcase the best of Hong Kong public speaking!
