Public Speaking Contest

Brigham Young University-Hawaii holds a public speaking contest sponsored by the political science department each year to help students develop presentation experience, logical reasoning, analysis capabilities, along with research and writing skills. Students watched a version of Frontline together after which they formed groups to prepare either a statement or agreement or rebuttal base on the arguments presented. Students then offered a 5 minute presentation expressing their argument while the judges assessed the presentations. Winners were then announced after a lunch break. The winners this year were ____________ and ____________. Congratulations!
