Event Details

The United States Embassy to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean, and the OECS is pleased to announce its Black History Month Secondary School Speech Competition which is open to all secondary school students in the Eastern Caribbean.

Each February, Black History Month celebrates the contributions made by persons of African descent and celebrates the defining moments in their history that have shaped society.  Young people represent the future decision makers, innovators, and leaders of a country.  They are vital voices, which in the face of challenges, employ unique approaches to solve problems and can mobilize entire communities to be active agents for positive change.

In recognition of Black History Month 2021, U.S. Embassy Bridgetown invites interested secondary school students (ages 13 to 16 years) in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines to deliver a speech, not exceeding three (3) minutes, to respond to one of the two prompts listed below.  Participants will have the opportunity to win a grand prize package valued at $1,000 USD for themselves and their school.

Enter via this google form.
