Congratulations to Academy for Public Speaking graduate Ella Engelberg!
Ella won 2nd place and a $1,500 scholarship in the San Diego District Optimist Club Oratorical Contest for 2020. We are very proud of you, Ella!
The topic for the 2020 speech contest was Just Imagine a World Without Boundaries. Contestants presented a 4-5 minute speech and began competing at the club level. Winners from the club level advanced to the zone level, and winners from the zone level advanced to the district level.
Competing is an excellent way to improve public speaking skills.
