TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 12, 2014) - VOICES, a Toronto intercollegiate public speaking competition, organized by Seneca's Corporate Communications students, will be held on Tuesday March 25, 2014 at The 1871 Berkeley Church, located at 315 Queen St. East at 9:30 a.m.
This annual competition serves as a platform for students from Seneca College, George Brown College, and Centennial College to voice their opinions and to gain valuable public speaking experience. This year's theme, Toronto State of Mind: What Defines Our City? will ask contestants to share their perspective on Toronto, and their hopes and visions for the city's future.
"Not only is this a chance for students to practice practical skills in the real world, but it showcases the talented individuals coming out of colleges in Toronto," said Dr. Andrew Schmitz, Chair of English and Liberal Studies at Seneca. "The School of English and Liberal Studies is focused on helping people find a voice. Our Corporate Communications students have always demonstrated exemplary skills in public speaking, writing and storytelling."
