The Junior High Public Speaking National Championship took place over 4 days this past weekend at West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver. Our very own Vivian Gu placed as 2nd best speaker overall, which is all time record for FDT students at this competition. In addition, Katherine Feng placed in 7th overall and May Fan placed 13th overall.
The competition is comprised of 4 individual events and several of our students broke to the final rounds in these events. In particular, Vivian was crowned the debate champion and Katherine was named the impromptu speech champion. Moreover, Vivian placed 2nd in the persuasive category and May placed 3rd in the interpretative reading category.
Congratulations to our students for their hard work and effort in preparing for this tournament. Good job guys!
