Voices of the future
The Mikolot Public Speaking initiative is a national competition, generously sponsored by the Moriah Foundation.
Mikolot promotes greater collaboration among Jewish schools, cultivates better public speaking skills amongst students and fosters a more refined expression of Jewish voices in the modern world.
Students are given a topic in Judaism to discuss and compete to make it through the national Grand Finals, hosted at Moriah College and judged by an independent expert panel. They present to the judging panel individually before addressing an audience of hundreds of their peers and educators. First, second and third place winners are awarded cash prizes to put towards a trip to Israel.
