Give a Powerful Speech at Hong Kong Persuade-athon 2022

HONG KONG PERSUADE-ATHON is back, and it’s bigger than ever. Sign up now to speak on Friday, 2 December, live on zoom!

Words have the power to change the world by changing the lives of people who live in it. Whether it is the famous speeches of Dr Martin Luther King, or the inspirational way in which a teacher communicates with their class – we all know that it is people who are prepared to speak up and speak out who have the greatest impact.

Enter Persuade-athon, an inter-school persuasive speaking competition, with the unique opportunity for YOU to demonstrate the power you hold through the art of public speaking.

This is an amazing opportunity to receive constructive feedback on your public speaking and to develop essential 21st-century soft skills like rhetoric and research. 

The competition will be open to ALL Year 6 to Year 11 Secondary students – no prerequisites or experience required. The competition will take place on Friday, 2 December, in a live event over zoom. Please note that this sign-up form will close on Friday, 11 November.
