Student success at national speaking competition

Callywith College student Oscar Brown is through to the Regional Final of ARTiculation, a national public speaking competition.

Oscar found his voice at the Young Curator’s programme at Cornwall’s Regimental Museum, where he entered the local heat of the speaking competition.

Chloe Hughes, Engagement Lead at Cornwall’s Regimental Museum says:

“It’s brilliant that two of our Young Curators have made it through to the Regional Final of such a prestigious competition.”

Oscar Brown has found the competition to be a positive experience, saying:

“This experience has allowed me to grow in confidence towards public speaking. I’m looking forward to talking at the Regional Final about a subject that interests me”.

Oscar will be competing for a spot at the Grand Final, taking place at Clare College, University of Cambridge on 1 March 2019.

Principal Mark Wardle says:

“I’m delighted that Oscar has reached the regional final of the ARTiculation Prize. Oscar thoroughly deserves his success and we will be cheering him on in the final.”

The Regional Final will take place at Plymouth College of Art and see students aged between 16-19 delivering ten minute presentations about a work of art, architecture or an artefact of their choice in front of an audience and an adjudicator.
