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 15th version, the Public Speaking Competition is one of ESU Chile's flagship events and involves over 60 students from nearly 30 schools. For a better idea of how the competition works, check out this video from the 2016 International Public Speaking Competition.


This year the competition will be held on April, 17th and 18th. To participate in the 2020 Public Speaking Competition you need to register your school below.

The theme for this year's competition is "Think globally, act locally".
