As a part of student engagement activity for students retained in the College during the 2020-2021 winter break, the Literary Club of the College organised the ‘Declamation Speech Competition’ on January 25, 2021.
Besides engaging the students, this competition was aimed to provide a platform for students to display and hone their communication and public speaking skills and also introduce the audience to great speeches of iconic personalities of the pasty and present.
The audience was filled with excitement to witness the participants enacting their role models delivering the speeches that were game changing not only in the lives of these great personalities but speeches that are remembered as historic epochs of their times. The participants showed a keen sense of zeal and enthusiasm in being part of the programme and displayed a great control of the moment on the stage as they declaimed the speeches.
Ms. Kezang Choden of B.Ed VI year Arts A, who declaimed Muniba Mazari Baloch, a Pakistani activist, anchor artist, model, singer and motivational speaker took away the first prize of the event followed by Ms. Nagwang Dema of II year BA in Social Work in the second place, who declaimed Namgay Zam, a Bhutanese freelance journalist’s TEDx Talk on “The Value of No” in the Bhutanese society.
