The speaker of the year pre-finale was conducted on 25 November 2015 at Manthan SVK- Shakurpur, by the team of National Youth Forum. The event comprised two parts – Personal Interview and Speak Shoot. 30 students participated in the event.
In the Personal Interview round, a panel was designed where all the candidates appeared for a personal interview round. It was a confidence booster for the students as it was their firsthand experience to face the camera and interview. Surpassing all the initial nervousness and jitters, the students performed really well and their knowledge on the event topic “water” was highly appreciated by the organizing committee.
In the Speak Shoot round, a small setup was created with cameras and lights, where each student was recorded whilst presenting their idea on the theme of the year – ‘Water’. It was an overwhelming experience as the students felt a mixed array of emotions including excitement, nervousness, enthusiasm and enjoyment. The students quickly caught the drift of the event and were extremely confident while presenting their ideas in front of the camera.
Mr Prateek, Ankit, Uday and Prabhjot from the organizing forum highly applauded the enthusiasm of the students. Two awards were presented to the students namely Super Idea Award and Super Vision Award. Bunty Kumari from class 5th won the Super Idea Award while the Super Vision Award was bagged by Sudhir Gupta of Class 10th. The Finale of the event ‘Speaker of the Year’ will be held at National Science center wherein selective students from all participating schools and NGO’s will partake.
