Youth Out Loud Public Speaking Competition

Youth Out Loud is a public speaking competition for young people aged 12 – 25 who live, work, attend school or belong to a club in the City of Swan. The competition provides young people with a platform to speak out about issues that not only affect them, but their community too, and is part of the City's commitment to ensuring the public participation of young people.

Contestants can cover topics as far ranging as social media, different worldviews or the environment in their speeches, as long as they are relevant to the theme of the competition. The theme changes every year. The theme for Youth Out Loud 2019 will be announced early in 2019 and all those that have registered their interest to compete in the competition will be notified.
