How To Enter

We're happy to announce that the Premier's Debating Challenge, the Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award and the Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking Competition will officially be back and running in Term 3! We're still sorting out the details of what the public speaking competitions will look like, but entries in all the Premier's Debating Challenge age divisions are back open.

The Premier's Debating Challenge 2020 Information Guides

We've had to make a few changes to how the challenge will run this year, so each age division now has its own simple one-page information guide. It's really important that you check out the appropriate guide before submitting an entry in the 2020 challenge so that you're aware of the changes we've had to make.
