Event description
2021 DFW Youth English Speech Contest is Coming Back in June!

About this event

The goal of the contest is to stimulate young students’ interests and boost their confidence and competence in public speaking by providing an opportunity for them to enhance their speech skills. This event has served the DFW community for over 10 years, and each year it attracts over 100 students from 1st to 12th grades for the contest and hundreds of participants including parents, educators, and volunteers involving this event.

The contest was skipped last year due to the pandemic. This year, we are excited to announce that we are going to hold our first Online Speech Contest.
