On April 1st, DAIS/DHA hosted the 1st Middle School Speech Contest. There were 15 students competing in two categories. One was original oratory, in which students prepared a speech about one of five topics, and impromptu, in which students prepared and presented a speech in 7 minutes on a randomly selected topic.
The MS students all did extremely well. They tried their best and demonstrated great speaking and presenting skills. With an audience of roughly 50 people, it was quite amazing to watch these young speakers bravely step up to the podium to share their ideas.
Here are some examples of topics that they discussed:
Although all students did well, the winners for each category were as follows:
|First Place||Suah Lee||Jonny Zhao|
|Second Place||Susan Li||Benny Zhao|
|Audience Choice||Tim Dian||Alan Xu|
We look forward to seeing the great speeches to come from these student speakers in the future.
