How does the competition work?


There are two rounds to this Student Political Speech Competition 


Round One: 


Submit a 2-3 minute video about you and your idea and what your political speech will be about, via this form by 26th January 2020 (12noon). Please ensure you have also completed this 'Release Form'.

Short-listed candidates will be contacted by the end of the w/c 7th February via email. 

If short-listed you will be provided with a mentor, a professional speech writer or practitioner, to help you perfect and develop your speech!

You will also be sent information on how the speeches will be judged.


Round Two:


Short-listed students will be invited to give a 7-12 minute speech to a panel of judges and a live audience on Thursday 12th March at Epic TV Studios Norwich. The good news is that your travel expenses will be covered by the PSA so we welcome students from all around the UK.
