Our 4th International Student Speech Contest has come to end. With 439 entries this year in 7 different languages, we are proud to say this contest was truly International. The judging process was a tedious one with so many wonderful entries, but we were excited to see all the thought leadership speeches varying from traditional platforms to creative platforms.

After a competitive analysis of all our finalists, our judges picked 3 videos that were exemplary videos of Graduation Speeches. Our three winners come from different parts of the world and represent China, Romania, and Mexico. Congratulations to our three 2019 Grand Prize Winners!

Contest Finalists


Our finalists represented the world. From the United States to China, our finalists should walk away proud knowing that their videos shined and our grand prize slots were slim in comparison to the entries. Please take a moment to recognize everyone that participated in the contest and everyone that made it to the finalist round. It takes tremendous courage to publically speak at any age.
