Lucien accepts his winner’s trophy November 3rd 2012

The seventh Hong Kong Schools Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championship was held on the 3rd of November, 2012, at Heep Yunn School in Kowloon. Last year 20 students competed, this year 42 high quality students from 18 schools in Hong Kong contested the event in four categories: debating, interpretive reading, persuasive speaking and impromptu speaking.

The quality was clearly up on last year and every student presented their speeches and readings with passion, purpose and conviction. All judges commented on the extremely high standard, and every single contestant can feel proud of their work, no matter what the ranking. It must be remembered people all over the world pay millions of dollars for the skills on display in this event, and the experience will stand the students in good stead as they develop their public speaking skills going forward.

Nine of the top ten overall points scorers. Along with Alan Gigi they won the right to represent HK in South Africa at the Worlds next Easter. (back L-R) Lucien Wang, Nicole Liu, Caitlin Fischer, Petra Ho, Madhav Menon
(Front L-R) Brian Wong, Claudia Tam, Anson Cheung, Zachariah Lee

Lucien Wang, Last year’s world champion for interpretive reading, from KGV School, cleared out from the pack to win by a margin of 25 points from his nearest rival, Zachariah Lee from St. Paul’s Co-ed. Lucien showed that he has developed in all four categories and scored an astounding 1099 out of a possible 1200 points. Anson Cheung formerly from DGS and now from Li Po Chun UWC picked up the 2nd Runner-up trophy with a very thorough all-round performance. Any one of the top 20 speakers could be worthy HK representatives.
