Inaugural UNC Speech Competition: How Can UNC Educate a Global Citizen?

Inaugural UNC Speech Competition:
How Can UNC Educate a Global Citizen?

On November 30, the Program for Public Discourse, UNC Global, and the UNC Department of Communication hosted a speech competition at the Nelson Mandela Auditorium in the FedEx Global Education Building. Twelve students entered the competition and presented their arguments to a public audience on how the university could better shape UNC students to be more globally minded. Each student presented their ideas of how best the university could achieve that goal, drawing on both their education on speechcraft and their personal experiences of living in an increasingly globalized society.

The winners of the speech competition were those students that presented the best constructed and most persuasive speech:

1st: Parker Roy for his speech, International Interactivity

2nd: Christopher Williams for his speech, All Consuming 

3rd: Vivian Kaye for her speech, Difficult Conversations
