From Monday 28th November you will be able to submit your standpoints. They will then automatically be entered into the Topical Talk standpoint competition for a chance to win personalised feedback from our expert judges plus a goodie-bag of prizes!
We think that standpoints are important because they’ll give you a chance to combine the knowledge and skills that you’ve worked on over the Festival to speak out about the Topical Talk topic that’s most important to you.
Standpoints must be submitted before Monday 12th December.
But first, we want to know?
- Why is it so important for young people, like you, to learn about the news?
- Why should young people share their opinions about the news?
- Why are speaking, listening, problem-solving and creativity important for understanding the news?
- What new knowledge have you gained from the Festival?
