On Tuesday the 7th of June, 2016, Giulia Neuteboom of 3Vtb took part in the regional junior speaking contest, held at Da Vinci College in Purmerend. The theme was “Simply Speechless”. Giulia had been chosen as the best candidate to represent the Willem Blaeu after an in-school competition.
Contestants from Trinitas (Heerhugowaard), Jac P. Thijsse College (Castricum), Tabor College (Hoorn) and Da Vinci (Purmerend) showed off their skills to an impartial jury made up of teachers from all the schools involved.
Topics dealt with by the candidates were diverse and ranged from animal testing to gender (in)equality. Giulia’s speech on animal testing in the cosmetic industry was powerful, and her delivery controlled – she came third and took home the bronze. Congratulations on a job well done!
