2018 My First Speech Competition open for entries



Imagine you have just been elected to Parliament and now it's time for your first speech in the House of Representatives Chamber. All your family, friends and colleagues are watching… not to mention the entire nation.

This nationwide competition is open to all Australian students enrolled in years 10 to 12.

Entries close 19 October 2018.

First, second and third place winners will be flown to Canberra with a parent or guardian to present their speech lives at Parliament House.

Have a good look around this website for lots of resources to help you craft your speech, talk to your teachers and practice your speech in front of others. 

Good luck!
