2023 Toronto Korean Speech Contest

The 17th Annual Toronto Korean Speech Contest will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at the University of Toronto. This year’s event will be held in in-person format for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic.  Participants should submit their online application along with the script by Tuesday, Feb. 28, 11:59 pm EST. A message about the qualification will be sent to each participant. Qualified participants should attend the main round meeting held at 11am on Saturday March 18 (Eastern Time). A panel of three judges will ask each participant instant questions after each speech presentation.

Please see https://catk.ca/speech-contest/guidelines/ for more details.

The website does not show the prizes at this moment (as of Feb 3, 2023), but organizers informed that they will include a roundtrip flight ticket to Korea, summer program at Korean universities, and more!

1-2 qualified UBC applicants can receive up to 400 dollars to cover your travel cost. If you are interested in participating, please contact Eurie Shin (eurie.shin@ubc.ca) by Saturday Feb 18, 11:59PM. You don’t need to have your script ready by then, but we want to see if anyone is interested first to plan the budget. Thank you.
