About the Contest
The youth generation is our future, and our future needs leaders. 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 youth & students to express themselves and be heard, our contest has witnessed many students developing excellent skill sets relating to effective communication and leadership integrity.
This year, we are expanding our contest to all regions, including Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Open to youth aged 8-18 of all nationalities, the 2nd Canada International Youth Public Speaking Contest is ready to support every contestant in achieving their personal best.
