The seventh annual Speakers Idol program will be held on Tuesday, March 27th (Toronto location to be announced soon). This year's speech writing & public speaking competition for students in Grades 6 – 12 MUST include the Simon Wiesenthal quote, «Freedom of speech is not freedom to propagate hatred,» while reflecting on how to create positive change in the world.
Last year's Speakers Idol program received almost 200 entries from students across the province — from Ottawa to London to Windsor, and everywhere in between. Determining the finalists was a difficult task — and we anticipate another group of outstanding entries again this year!
