The month of December 2021 brought another beautiful event with the participation of Belgrade Toastmaster. Namely, the “Friends of the Children of Surčin Municipality” has organized the seventh municipal public speaking competition at the elementary school “October 22”, in honor of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the great Russian writer, Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky. Thus, the theme of the contest was one of his thoughts: “Life, fall down, just let those that I love, to be happy.”
12 young speakers from various primary schools, bravely shared their communication skills through inspirational and stimulating speeches. As one of the public speaking’ contest judges, a representative of Belgrade Toastmasters was pleased to testify that the youth in Serbia is very creative and talented in conveying descriptive messages. This competition has inspired our club to focus next year on the empowering of young people in the development of good communication skills and their participation in public speaking competitions.
