Mladý Demosthenes, a rhetorical contest for young people

In the middle of last week our students, who were successful in the school round of the contest Mladý Demosthenes (http://www.mladydemosthenes.cz/), took part in the nail-​biting regional round that took place at Open Gate for the first time. The first task for all participants was a personal introduction. During this session they received recommendations from the members of the jury on how they could improve their speeches and their overall impression. Soon afterwards the first rhetoricians started their speeches followed by 40 other participants.

Once again we were very proud of our students as they all managed to qualify for the next round according to their age category. Many thanks to Adéla Chroustová, Vlasta Kotrbatý, Jakub Zajíček, and Nikol Chadimová for a great school representation. We wish them the very best for the next round in March.
