Olivia Wins Northern Ireland Soroptimists' Public Speaking Competition

9th Feb 2019

Congratulations to Olivia Watson in Year 13, who has won the NI final of the Soroptimist International Public Speaking Competition held in Hillsborough today. Facing stiff competition from other outstanding young women, Olivia was judged the winner by a panel of three judges. Olivia delivered two speeches, one of which was a five-minute performance prepared in advance. The second speech, an extempore presentation, was prepared with only five minutes' notice. Thanks to Mrs Cooper for her encouragement and support.

Olivia wins a silver salver and £200. She has also been invited to speak at the Soroptimists' annual conference in March. Well done Olivia on a magnificent achievement.
