Public Speaking Competition for Grade VIII
“Words have incredible power. They can make people’s heart soar or they can make people’s hearts sore.”- Dr. Mardy Grothe
All round development of the students is not only limited to academic endeavors but it also demands the enhancement of communication skills. Effective and impressive skills at Public Speaking, is inevitable in today’s education. Unfortunately most of the students feel nervous and panic at the crucial moment. Hence, do not tend to participate and polish the public speaking skills. It is apparently one of the most feared experiences with many. The best way to alleviate these fears is to start training them at an early stage. So with a vision to enhance and pioneer the public speaking skills in our students, we have organised “Public Speaking Competition”.
Kindly note that it is an oral competition. The students must prepare their own speech on the topic given below and present it within the stipulated time. The time allotted for each speaker is 3 minutes with a grace period of 10 seconds.
- The competition is scheduled on Sunday, 12 November 2017
- The topic: ‘The Influence of Advertisements in our life’
The students will be judged based on the following criteria:
- Presentation and Confidence
- Use of language
- Voice modulation
- Body Language and Eye Contact
Looking forward to your support and cooperation.
