Waterford Europe Direct Soapbox Competition 2015  

‘Charity begins at home’

Each autumn, the Europe Direct Information Centres  together with the the European Commission Representation in Ireland and the LGMA, run a National Soapbox Competition. Echoing its Hyde Park origins, the soapbox is the perfect vehicle to showcase our proud tradition of public speaking and this annual competition is the ideal forum for the country’s budding and practiced public speakers alike.

In recognition of the European Year for Development, the topic for the 2015 Europe Direct Soapbox Competition is ‘Charity begins at home’.

Waterford Europe Direct Information Centre will host the South East regional final at 11.00am on Wednesday 14th October at the Central Library, Lady Lane, Waterford. For copies of application forms and rules please log on to www.europedirect.ie and follow the Soapbox link.
