“Secrets” that will make others listen to them and their opinions, give all

beneficial tips as they participate in the competition, and most important,

help them touch, shape and shake our world! In addition, “Issues Briefings”

will cover important issues of the day that are impacting your community and

every school. Prizes, too!

them and upload them at the Words That Shook The World speech competition

web site. You will find all the details on the competition and prizes on our

web site. Come see the winning speeches from 2006, too. Speeches will be

judged online thousands of high school principals and teachers like you and

business professionals. The 10 best speakers will compete November 24 in
