The Asia Institute and Kyung Hee Cyber University
Global Speech Contest for Students
(November 30, 2013)
The Asia Institute teamed up with Kyung Hee Cyber University to hold an English language speech contest for students in elementary school, middle school and high school. The students delivered speeches entirely in English in front of a board of three judges on diverse topics ranging from Korean culture and international relations to climate change and social responsibility. The contest is part of a larger effort by Asia Institute to effectively draw young people into public debate and inculcate the skills of debate, rhetoric and systematic critical thinking about serious contemporary issues.
