Youth Speaks: A Debate is organised and promoted by Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RotaryGBI). It is a four-stage competition which is designed to support and encourage the development of effective communication skills.
Challenge your public speaking abilities and perform, persuade and entertain the audience with your display of wit and knowledge of a topic.
In teams of three participants present arguments and points of discussion, before taking questions from the judging panel who are, themselves, skilled orators.
Participants can select a topic which is important to them, giving them an opportunity to delve deep into research, formulate ideas and build confidence.
