Our legacy

Empowering the voices of tomorrow, setting the stage for Asia Pacific's rising public speakers

The Asian Public Speaking Championships is a defining legacy that shapes the discourse landscape for middle and high school students across the Asia Pacific through its distinctive Modified Worlds format and diverse communication disciplines. Annually etching the narratives of articulate voices from Singapore to Australia, China to Indonesia. Its Modified Worlds format doesn't just challenge participants; it propels them into a legacy-in-the-making, where eloquence becomes a timeless imprint. The Asian Public Speaking Championships is a cornerstone in the journey of every participant, a chapter in the collective legacy of articulate voices shaping the region's discourse.

We never had access to international public speaking competitions before discovering EduDrift, so we used to compete in local competitions. EduDrift's Asian Public Speaking Championships propelled us to an arena of more competitive speakers and challenged us to elevate our students' skills to remain competitive.
