The eagerly anticipated District 80 International Speech Contest filled the auditorium of The Grassroots’ Club on 13 May 2018 with much air of exhilaration. Who will soar even higher amongst the best speakers of the District?
Audience were at the edge of their seats watching the superb performance by Eugene Seah, Renald Loh, Amalroy Lerroy Ashwin, Hanifa K. Cook, Miow Sen, Ng Cher Khim, Michell Sheya Wong, Salma Begum, Wiwick Najihah and Nadasaon Suhumaran as they appear on stage.
From lessons on missed opportunities, nurturing the surroundings of someone you care, picking up the pieces after a fall, treasure every moment with your loved ones, to taking a second look at someone who are less fortunate… Attendees of the Contest have much to take from.
After the break, comes the just as exuberantly awaited District 80 Table Topics Contest 2018.
