For the 7th year running, secondary schools across Scotland are invited to participate in the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service school public speaking competition. Schools are encouraged to enter teams from their S2 or S3 year group to take part in the competition.
Pupils taking part participate in teams of two and compete against other schools. The competition provides pupils with an excellent platform for them to develop their skills and gain confidence in public speaking. Competing with other schools gives them the opportunity to interact with their peers and engage with equality and diversity issues.
Our 2019 competition saw 164 pupils from 57 schools across Scotland take part. This year we hope to welcome many more schools, and offer each of them the opportunity to take home the coveted winning trophy. Can you help make this year’s competition bigger than ever?
All Scottish schools are encouraged and welcomed to take part in the annual School Public Speaking Competition. You can find out more about what the competition involves here.
