Calling all teenagers with a passion for storytelling and a phone in hand!

WeSpeak Teen has launched their Video Competition, a fantastic opportunity for young minds to harness the power of their voice, express themselves and win incredible prizes.

If you’re a teenager aged 14 – 18, then this is your chance to shine. WeSpeak is inviting all middle school to high school students to record and share a video that shares your journey toward confidence in public-speaking, by describing what confidence, competence and calm mean to you in this context. Simply upload your video via the link below for your chance to win $1,000!

This competition is not just about winning; it’s about self-expression, creativity, and embracing the values of practicing speaking in front of an audience – or in this case, a camera. It’s an opportunity for young individuals to explore their perspectives, share their unique voices, and be part of the WeSpeak community, which encourages growth and empowerment.

“Our goal with the WeSpeak Teen Video Competition is to empower teenagers to showcase their unique and authentic voices, as well as creativity and passion for meaningful storytelling. We believe that by reflecting on what confidence, competence, and calm mean to them, participants can inspire and connect with others, like they do at the Teen Boot Camp.” said Sarah Dunstan, WeSpeak Teen Chair.

This competition aligns perfectly with WeSpeak’s mission to amplify the voices of young individuals and provide them with platforms to practice and make positive change and impact.

Topic: How does having ‘confidence,’ ‘competence,’ and ‘calm’ impact public speaking and what does it mean for you?

Age Range: Middle School-High School (14 – 18 years old)

The runner-up will receive $500, while the third-place winner will be rewarded with $300 in cash, courtesy of WeSpeak.
