JCI Public Speaking & Competitions
Public speaking is a critical skill of a leader who can motivate people toward positive change. A speech competition requires a special kind of public speaking, challenging participants to express creative ideas in a clear and captivating manner.
Public speaking is one of the most difficult aspects for most people, and at JCI, we give you a safe & fun platform to improve your skills.

Every well-prepared speech should have an introduction that captures the attention of the audience, a body featuring the speaker’s message, and a powerful conclusion summarizing the speaker’s arguments.
The competition gives every participant a way to express their thoughts to others in an exciting and challenging way. National Public Speaking contest winners compete at the JCI Area Conferences.
The winner from each JCI Conference is then expected to represent his or her Area in the final round of the JCI World Public Speaking Championship at the JCI World Congress to be held each year.
