Soapbox Winner

Posted on : December 3, 2021

Well done to SGS DebSoc member, Alfie Barron from TY,  who has won the Regional section of the Europe Direct Soapbox Public Speaking competition. The competition is held annually and this year, thanks to Covid-19, it was a virtual competition. Ellen O’Hara, 2nd year and  Dara Kilcommons, 3rd year, also competed against other secondary school students from Sligo town and county. The topic for discussion was “Lies, damned lies and statistics – Establishing the truth is impossible in today’s world of misinformation, disinformation and propaganda”. Alfie won an i-pad and will go on to compete against students from all over Ireland in the National Finals on Thursday December 9th. The final will also be a virtual event and will be streamed on YouTube at 11.30am. Good luck, Alfie!
