Youth Out Loud 2020 asks young people to deliver a speech that explores the concept of self. Explore your own identity and what makes you who you are, what pressures you feel on your sense of self and self-reflection. What have you learned in self-isolation?
The contestant can discuss something they are passionate about as long as it references the theme.
It is important to remember that Local Government is your audience and a reference to the role of local government in relation to your topic/the theme, and a local community focus is strongly recommended.
In particular, a call to action for the City would be positive – what action would you like to see taken from your speech? What would you like to see the City do? What would you like to see other young people do as a result of your speech?
