UN Youth Voice is the flagship public speaking event for students in Years 7-10, now running at a national level.
Unlike any other public speaking competition, UN Youth Voice asks contestants to present their innovative solutions to some of the world’s most prominent and pressing issues. The competition encourages innovation and sustainability, rewarding substance in speeches as well as speaking manner and structure.
Students are invited to select the issue about which they are most passionate from four provided topics. The aim is to suggest tangible and achievable solutions to the complications surrounding their given topic. This is presented through a prepared speech, with an additional “Question Time” component.
This is an incredible chance for younger students to present their creative solutions to global problems in a welcoming and supportive environment.
