Rotary Youth Speaks: A Debate

Get a team together to show your debating skills and master the art of public speaking

Challenge your public speaking abilities and perform, persuade, and entertain the audience with your display of knowledge of a topic.

In teams of three, participants present arguments and points of discussion, before taking a question from the audience.

Participants can select a topic that is important to them, allowing them to delve deep into research, formulate ideas, and expand their knowledge.

Taking part helps build self-confidence and develop public speaking skills, including how to keep an audience engaged.

Entrants can take part in the Intermediate (ages 11-13) or Senior (14-17) categories (ages as of 31st August 2023).
