Aim Higher ‘Speak Out’ Challenge Digital Final

By : Alanna | July 7, 2021

Tonight is our first ever Aim Higher Speak Out Challenge Digital Final event. Young speakers from across the West Midlands will be sharing their views and opinions and competing for the title of Digital Final Champion 2021.

The West Midlands Speak Out Challenge! has been running for 4 years, giving young people the confidence to express themselves. This year we have worked with 833 young people across the region. This programme is delivered in partnership with Aim Higher.

Aim Higher West Midlands is a partnership of universities, schools and colleges working to support learners who face a number of challenges to broaden their horizons and make informed decisions about their future educational and career choices.

Tonight’s speakers have been chosen by their peers and teachers to represent their school at the event- no matter who the winner is, they have all achieved so much in winning a place at the final. This event would normally take place in a school auditorium with an audience of supporters – tonight we will be on Zoom where speakers will share films of their fantastic speeches. This has been an extraordinary year for everyone, and we are all so proud of these students for the resilience and determination that it took to continue with their Speak Out Challenge, despite the circumstances.
