Public Speaking Competition

Public speaking is an essential skill that students will need in both their academic and professional lives. Participating in the Public Speaking Competition helps students to structure their thoughts and ideas, while communicating with confidence. 

Every year, the competition brings together the best young speakers from across the country, with the winner going on to represent Chile at the International Public Speaking Competition in London. During the competition, students must prepare and deliver a speech based on a theme that is provided by ESU UK. The best 8 speakers then deliver an impromptu speech in a true test of their public speaking skills.

Now in its 16th version, the Public Speaking Competition is one of ESU Chile's flagship events and involves over 60 students from nearly 30 schools. 


This year, 2021, the competition will be held virtually. The Chilean competition is scheduled for Semi-finals on Thursday 29th, April and Finals on April 30th.

Our Chilean winner will attend "The International Public Speaking Competition" scheduled on May 10th - 14th , 2021.
