Hertford and Ware Youth Speaks competition

We had a record 14 teams enter this year (6 Intermediates and 8 Seniors). There would have been 15 teams but a Simon Balle Intermediate team dropped out at the last minute due to sickness. A John Warner chairperson had to also stand in at the last minute as the main speaker in their other intermediate team.

It was a very successful evening. In spite of the large number of teams we started promptly at 6.30 and finished just after 10pm. My thanks go to our judges headed up by Julian Bishopp (brought back out of retirement) assisted by Bob Barker and Ivan Legallais, and to Alan Furness our timekeeper and Gill Geall for compering the evening and pushing through the teams in record time and to Ware Inner Wheel for looking after the refreshments. 

The subjects covered were many and varied – Social media, animal rights, mental illness, school uniform, let dogs be dogs, digital human rights enforcement, protection of prisoners human rights, inclusive education, absence makes the heart grow fonder, great expectations, does the end justify the means  and LGBT (for those unfamiliar with the term it is Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Trans genders),

The students were brilliant – full of confidence.

For those members that did not attend, they missed a very special evening. 

The winners were

Intermediates 1st Sele School 2nd The John Warner School

Seniors 1st Chauncy School 2nd Simon Balle School
