Storytellers Public Speaking Contest is designed to challenge our Year 9 - 13 students by placing them in a competitive environment where they can be tested in their public speaking ability alongside some of New Zealand's top public speakers. This is an annual event with three rounds - Heats, Semis & Final. It is a filter system which means a successful participate must win over 3 different sets of judges to advance through each stage. The final event will bring together the 10 finalist which have advanced from heats and semis. In the final, three placings will be awarded with the first place winner being crowned the Storytellers NZ Public Speaking Champion.
