As part of our curriculum every person must prepare a three minute speech.  If selected, they go to the team finals where they compete with selected people from 3 other classes.  If selected from the team finals, they then go to the school finals, where they compete with the top speeches in the school.  I did this, and then went on to win the school finals, and then came 3rd in the eastern zone finals.  Here is my speech.  Have a listen.
