The ESU helps young people become confident communicators and, in these testing times when most schooling is online, students will benefit from developing their speaking skills more than ever before.
All students from primary upwards are invited to film themselves in a short video (1-5 minutes) delivering a speech, a poem, a monologue etc and post it on a social media platform of their choice using the hashtag #esufestivalofspeaking.
You are free to talk about whichever subject you choose but if you’re stuck for ideas, this week’s theme is: ‘Has social media made conversation less civil?’ Tell us what you think!
See other entries here and remember, this is not a competition and there are no winners – it is a celebration of the voices of young people – so there are no rules that have to be obeyed!
For some general information on how to take part and how to make your video, please click here. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
