Oratacular Competition is a competition that encourages students from Grade 1 through Grade 6 to speak to the public on a topic of relevance for about 3-5 minutes to highlight the topic and confidently speak to the audience. Participants are rated on their message delivery, confidence, props used and the final closing line. Students prepare their speech and speak to the audience from memory. The topic for this year was "If I could change one thing in the world ". Vikram spoke the topic "Why to stop the use of Plastic Straws " completely out of memory. Vikram won 2nd place in this competiton with his speech in the category of Grade 1-3 and was given an Amazon Gift card, An Oratucular Speech Badge, a cerficate and a medal . Well done Vikram!
