About the Contest

Youths are our future,
and our future needs leaders.


The Canada International Youth Public Speaking Contest emphasizes youth leadership and communication skills, empowering young individuals to achieve greater confidence in future growth.

Started as a platform for Chinese-Canadian youths to express themselves and be heard, our contest has motivated many students to develop skill sets in effective communication and leadership integrity.

This year, we are expanding our contest to all regions of North America, including Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Open to youths aged 8-17 of all nationalities, the 2019 Canada International Youth Public Speaking Contest is here to help every contestant achieve their personal best.

Let's take it to the next level!

Registration for the first round of the 2019 Canada International Youth Public Speaking Contest opens until October 1st
