Student Story Slam 2024
This competition offers students a public speaking experience to boost creativity and build presentation skills.
The event will be held in English, but students will be judged on their story not than their English proficiency.
This year's theme is Belonging
Get inspired by a place or a person that makes you feel like you belong. Bring out your stories about passions that keep pulling you, or a club that welcomes you. Search for stories about your fear of being different or stories about accepting yourself or others.
Pick a memory of something that shaped your identity and tell us your story.
