The Telenet - BBC Public Speaking Awards (TN-BBC Awards 2015) are organised for the eigth time by Telenet and BBC Worldwide with the support of the British Embassy, the U.S. Embassy, The Northern Ireland Executive Office, the British Council and under the auspices of the English Speaking Union - UK & Belgium.
The Awards are aimed at young people who strive to achieve excellence in English and make active use of the English language.
This competition gives students the opportunity to express their opinions to a young audience who, like themselves, are facing questions about their own lives and their hopes for the future.
The Telenet - BBC Awards offer a great opportunity for 16 to 20-year old students to improve their skills in public speaking. It's a challenge to express opinions in English, and the experience of participating will certainly be useful in later years. It is certainly worth competing!.
