Japanese Speech Contest Success

Japanese Speech Contest Success

Darwin High School congratulates Year 11 student Hussain Al-Ibrahim for winning the 2022 Special Prize at the finals of the 52 Japanese language speech contest!

As a state finalist for the National Speech Contest, Hussain represented NT and gave a unique speech titled "Non-Scientific Yokai."

 Competition Judge, Jeremy Breaden gave this feedback

As usual it was very difficult to select a single stand-out speech for the Special Prize, but all judges agreed that this speech had a ‘special something’. From its intriguing title right through to the final message about opening your mind to new ways of looking at the world, this speech displayed a great combination of originality and careful planning. Moreover, it was delivered in a distinctively engaging style with clear enunciation and listener-friendly timing.
