Take the Lead welcomes young voices

On Saturday, the Take the Lead public-speaking contest welcomes females in Grades 11 and 12 to participate in a one-of-a-kind contest at Brescia University College, which is being hosted for the seventh time since 2009. This year, finalists were selected after contestants submitted a pre-recorded, five-minute video of their speech. And, for the first time ever, Take the Lead will host six international contestants.

“We are thrilled to extend our contest from Ontario, through to Guyana, Barbados, Bahamas, China and Hong Kong,” said Marianne Simm, Brescia vice-principal, students. “We look forward to providing a rich program for the students outside of the day itself.”
