This is probably one of the most enjoyable Annual Youth Competitions offered to young people. The standard is very high bearing in mind the age of the competitors and we recommend attending one or both of our competitions, which usually take place in October or November. Please contact us if you would like to attend.


This Club has been involved in this well-established and successful competition for a number of years. In the last two years we have joined with the Kingston and New Malden Clubs to jointly organise the local heats covering the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the surrounding area.


The competition aims to offer young people:

  • experience in speaking on a public platform as a member of a team

  • incentive to formulate ideas on their chosen topical subjects

  • discipline in dealing with the topic in a limited time

  • the opportunity of learning and practising high standards of expression, presentation and appearance

  • impartial feedback and assessment of performance by experienced adjudicators


The competition is open all schools and college communities including those that are home educated and any other young people’s community organisations.


Each team comprises of three students in full time education in two age groups:

Intermediate – 11 to 13 years

Senior – 14 to 17 years


The winners from our heats go on to take part in the District Heats and Finals, the winners progress to the Regional Final and finally on to the National Final.


Other competitions available are Young Writer, Young Chef, Young Photographer and Young Citizen.
