Please note there are some changes in this year's competition.

  1. The topic of the Auckland regional contests is Kia Kaha! 加油中国!, to express our support to the people impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak. Or you can choose any topic by your own.
  2. The contest in the Tertiary Category is an individual audition. In the week between 25 and 29 May, tertiary students are welcome to pop into our office to have a go.
    Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the Alert Level 4 lockdown, the tertiary category contest has been moved to online. Please read the Tertiary Category Info for the changes.
  3. The secondary contest has been divided into two rounds. All students are welcome to participate and submit his/her speech video. The first round is online only. The top 10 winners in each category after the first round will be invited to the regional final event on 29 June. (If social distancing is still required then, a live ZOOM final session will take place.)
