Posties English Speech Contest

Posties English Speech Contest

We are delighted to announce that the first Posties English Speech Contest organised by the South China Morning Post and the English Drama and Speech Academy (EDSA) is coming in March 2021. Supported by the EDSA, one of the most experienced and highly regarded speech performance training academies, the inaugural Posties Speech Contest will put the spotlight on public speaking. The Contest is open to Primary 1 to 6 students with 5 categories to choose from: Prose Speaking, Verse Speaking, Show & Tell, Public Speaking and News Reporting.

Unlike traditional school speech competitions and aligned with SCMP values, the Posties English Speech Contest encourages students to speak their minds. Hence, students are required to produce their own opinion piece for the Public Speaking and News Reporting categories. 

Join now and show us what you have got!
