About the Award: World Speech Day is a day dedicated to celebrating speeches and speech making, through a multitude of live speaking events across the globe on a single day – in schools and colleges, in community halls and university debating chambers, in offices, parliaments, museums and parks – even cafes.

It’s a not-for-profit organization which believes in human potential and the power of speeches to realize that potential in everyday life; to share ideas; to change people; and to change the world.

World Speech Day harnesses the wisdom of crowds to uncover remarkable ideas from unexpected voices around the world. The emphasis is on ‘‘unexpected voices.’’

‘‘Given that most of us tend to think of Great Speeches as being delivered by well-established Western authors – be they toga-clad Roman senators or faces later to be hewn into Mount Rushmore – this choice (of unexpected voices around the world) is an intriguing choice,’’ says Sam Leith.

One voice can change everything. And small voices add up. In the USA, March 15, 2016, was designated by the US Senate as “National Speech and Debate Education Day”. There’s a time when silent is not golden.

The loose theme for World Speech Day speeches is: “Thoughts for a Better World”. The event will be streamed live. Each speaker will speak for a maximum of seven (7) minutes on any topic of their choice that would accentuate our theme.
