The SpringBoard National Speech Championship expand students’ English and academic skills – whilst also being a lot of fun!
The aim of our tournament is to further students’ understanding of the English language while helping them develop skills in leadership, public speaking, debating, critically thinking, team-building, negotiation and time management all necessary for future leaders. Team members must work closely together, support one another, and strive to be the best they can be.
Every year, the contest focuses on a topical theme, which provides a forum for students to explore important global political and social issues. Previous years have been devoted to subjects such as UK Education and Culture, ASEAN Community and ASEAN Economic Integration, Environment and Global Warming, World Issues, Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematic, Economic, Gender.
The competition consists of a series of challenges for the teams, which are assessed and graded by a select panel of judges.
