NZ-wide speech competition


We are writing to let you know about a new NZ-wide speech competition we have started for Year 9 & 10 students.
This could work well for Home Schooled students.

The purpose of this competition is to encourage students to make a speech on any social justice topic, with the hope of increasing the understanding of social justice issues amongst NZ students.

This competition is being run by a partnership of justice focussed NZ organisations, including Tear Fund, Stand Against Slavery, Effective Altruism NZ & Kings Trust.

The competition is very simple –
– open to any Year 9 & 10 students
– speech can be on any social justice topic
– filmed by phone or any other easy method – submitted via our website
– entries close 10th Dec
– judged by independent judges
– first prize of $1000 for student + $1000 for charity of their choice + $1000 for their school
– 5 spot prizes of $100 each (to encourage participation)

There is a pdf of a poster/flyer advertising this competition available for download at

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Best wishes for the rest of this year
