Join us for the Plain English Speaking Award final on the 28th of June. 

The Plain English Speaking Award Final will showcase senior secondary level students discussing issues of contemporary significance. The finalists will deliver a Prepared Speech on a topic of their own choice and an Impromptu Speech on a topic provided by an adjudicator. Students will learn about how adjudicators judge speeches and will have a chance to have a go themselves before asking questions about the decisions made during the final.
