The last day of the event, 23rd October, it was the contest day!!
Photo taking was prohibited, thus no photo was taken during the session. However, if you joined the session, you would have enjoyed the session a lot! It was full of laughters from all the Humorous Speech contestants! All contestants were so great in telling jokes!
Same for the Speech Evaluation Contest, all constestants were doing great to evaluate the test speaker too!
Although division champion didn’t get the chance to step onto the stage to receive the award, but he is still our Division H Humorous Speech Champion!!
