Toastmasters Speech Contests 2020-2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Toastmasters Speech and Table Topics Contests were held online on December 5 and this first-ever event was a resounding success.  The contests are held every year and allow participants of the Toastmasters Youth Leadership Program to demonstrate their communication and leadership skills.  This year, there were 35 contestants from S2 to S4 and 7 judges from the Toastmasters International.  

The contests were divided into two sessions:  Prepared Speech and Table Topics.  Due to the overwhelming response from participants, the Prepared Speech and Table Topics sessions were each divided into two rounds.  18 students took part in the Prepared Speech Contest while 17 students participated in the Table Topics Contest.  The contests had indeed provided an opportunity and platform for students to shine and share their wonderful speeches with the audience.
