This is a reputable and very high quality English public speaking contest initiated in Mainland China over 20 years ago. The Hong Kong Region has been a part of it since 2017. The contest involves 3 rounds and in the Finals, 6 judges score each finalist's speech with two follow-up questions to which competitors have to respond immediately.
This year, Aldon So 3E got through to the junior final while Aden Su and Jayden Tang made it to the senior final. The finals were held on 8 May 2021 (Sat) and the results were launched yesterday (12 May). We are more than thrilled to receive a Champion and a First Runner Up in the end!
Aden who won the Champion of the senior group is invited to represent Hong Kong in the National Finals which will be held in the coming July/August. He will compete with winners from 80 other regions in China.
An award ceremony for the results of the Hong Kong Region Final will be held in July. More updates will be available soon.
Below is Aldon's initial submitted video for the first round with the speech title of "My Favourite Festival":
