In my opinion, this is one of the best competitions that Rotary gets involved with. Young people “debate” a topic in front of 3 judges and an audience. The competition is hosted at Eton College.
We need 6 judges for the evening and we are likely to be hosting 2 events (so 12 judges) this year as I’ve taken on the Youth Speaks District Champion role. If you feel you can add some value to the judging process and are available on Thursday 20th October between 6PM & 9PM then please complete the form below.
Below are videos from last year’s competition which wasn’t a competition… impacted by Covid, we tried a different method of judging, ensuring our young people were able to benefit from the experience of competing in such a historic location, which went down very well. This just gives you a taster…
Trevelyan Middle School got things underway with Ellie Chandler talking for the idea that “Animal Testing Should be Banned”. Ozzy Urso-Baiarda presented the argument against the ban chaired by Noor Ouchikh.
Windsor Girls School debated “Should Reparations be Paid to Victims of Slavery”. Chaired by Cherry, Nicole opposed and Kiya spoke for.
Windsor Boys School went for “Is the Royal Family Past Their Sell by Date?” George chaired, Albert spoke for and Charlie Kingsford opposed the idea.
The evening was concluded by Trevelyan Middle School debating “Violent Video Games”. Adrian opposed, Sam was for and Sakina ably chaired the debate.
