As in the past editions, the last, exciting chapter of Winter Carnival at HQIS has been our Upper School Speaker’s Cup.

This year, the competition has been particularly intense. The speeches covered a big range of topics: environmental issues, personal stories, psychology, trends, actuality topics, life problems, and much more. Each student delivered two speeches, a prepared speech and an unprepared speech, that were judged by a mixed jury of both teachers and students. Students’ performances have been evaluated according to their preparedness, voice, fluency, eloquence, time, rhetoric, and consistency with the topic. It’s been extremely hard for the jury to make choices, as this year the speeches reached a new level and every single contestant has done a fantastic job, surprising the panel of judges and inspiring their peers.

As part of the school’s tradition, the Best Overall Speakers will have the honor to get their names carved on the base of the Speaker’s Cup, which will be kept in the

Congratulations to the winners!
