Young Members' Introduction to Judging

Loading Events

Discover how Young Members can get involved with the ESU’s lifechanging work by becoming a judge for the ESU-Churchill Public Speaking Competition.

Led by some of our brilliant young volunteers, this informal discussion will explain what the ESU-Churchill Public Speaking Competition is, why it’s so important for young people, and how Young Members can support the ESU’s vital mission by getting involved as a judge! It’s truly a wonderful opportunity for any young person looking to gain more experience, meet interesting peers, and develop skills for their future.
