UN Youth Voice Queensland Competition

Mr Darren Lee – Humanities Teacher        

After delivering a compelling speech at the UN Youth Voice Queensland Competition on solving the very difficult issue of nuclear proliferation, Year 10 student, Joshua Bailey, has been selected to compete in the semi-finals.

Held in November at Griffith University, Joshua will share his thoughts on how the global democratisation of anti-missile technology could help to correct an imbalance in power by removing fear.

UN Youth Voice is the national flagship public speaking event for students in Years 7 to 10.

Unlike any other public speaking competition, it asks contestants to present their innovative solutions to some of the world’s most prominent and pressing issues.

Students are invited to select the issue about which they are most passionate from four provided topics. The aim is to suggest tangible and achievable solutions to the complications surrounding their given topic.

We wish you all the best for your next speech Joshua.
