We are delighted to announce that the first Posties English Speech Contest organised by the South China Morning Post and the English Drama and Speech Academy (EDSA) is coming in March 2021. Supported by the EDSA, one of the most experienced and highly regarded speech performance training academies, the inaugural Posties Speech Contest will put the spotlight on public speaking. The Contest is open to Primary 1 to 6 students with 5 categories to choose from: Prose Speaking, Verse Speaking, Show & Tell, Public Speaking and News Reporting. Unlike traditional school speech competitions and aligned with SCMP values, the Posties English Speech Contest encourages students to speak their minds. Hence, students are required to produce their own opinion piece for the Public Speaking and News Reporting categories. Join now and show us what you have got!  Posties 英語朗誦比賽目的是為學生們提供英語朗誦及公開演講的實踐機會,讓他們有機會同儕,互相切磋,了解自己的英語能力,透過比賽提升英語朗誦及演說技巧。

Due to an overwhelming number of contestants, the start and end time of the preliminary and final round have been adjusted. Please refer to the assigned time slot on your contest confirmation. 由於報名人士眾多,初賽及決賽時間將有所調節。請以比賽通知書作準。
