Best Overall Speaker
This award goes to the overall best speaker. We take all aspects of creation, structure and delivery into account. We look for excellent use of the four tools of public speaking and evidence of learning.
Best commanding presence
This award goes to the person who demonstrates a strong commanding presence throughout the delivery of their speech. We look for a confident stance before, during and at the close of the speech.
Best Speech Opening
This award goes to the person who demonstrates confidence and presence when opening their speech. We look at how they use and implement the 9 second rule, which they will have learned about within the programme.
Best Speech Close
This award goes to the person who demonstrates confidence and presence when closing their speech. We look at how they maintain a strong voice to the very end and then hold their strong commanding presence as the audience applaud.
A teacher can nominate any pupil for this certificate. We invite all teachers to let us know of any pupil who, in their opinion, is deserving of this certificate for any public speaking related reason whatsoever.
