Student Speakers Tournament

Student Speakers Tournament is for students in grades 10-12 which awards college scholarships to its winners. It is designed to develop leadership in students by teaching them Christian doctrine, apologetics, public speaking, poise, and confidence in leadership through the verbal expression of their faith. It demands serious time and effort, but with a tremendous payoff. Students grow spiritually when engaged in research, study, prayer, and practice of preparing a speech. Today’s speakers will be ready to stand for Christ in their churches, schools, work places, and communities. They will develop communication skills to articulate truth in a way that people will hear and understand. The personal, spiritual benefits of participating in this tournament far outweigh any scholarships that may be earned through this ministry.
