An elocution competition is an event where a participant shows their public speaking skills by delivering prepared speeches or reciting poetry. It is a platform to express their own well being and improve their communication abilities, and gain confidence in speaking in front of an audience. Competitors are scored on qualities like clarity, articulation, voice modulation, emotion, and overall presentation during the competition. Elocution competitions are an excellent way for students to express their oratory talents. We organize State level Elocution competition every year in the memory of our founder President, former Home Minister of India and Chief Minister of Maharashtra Hon’ble Shri. Shankarrao Chavan.
