Speechathon

What is
Speechathon?

Speaking is a tool that can be used to effectively communicate thoughts, ideas, and situations. Speechathon aims at helping shape students' professional and personal growth by providing them with a platform to speak on topics of their interest.

Effective speaking skills, presentation skills, and delivery, if developed from an early age, will provide students with a solid foundation that will help them in their future endeavors irrespective of the profession they choose.

Thus, Speechathon is an opportunity for students to express themselves.
