Congratulations to the winners of Waverley Communicators International Speech Contest and Evaluation Contest which took place on Thursday 19th March.
Jacek Lesota came first in the club’s International Speech Contest and
John Wood was first in the club’s Evaluation Contest.
Both Jacek and John went on to the next round yesterday when they represented the club at the Area 30 contest, competing against the contest winners from the other clubs in Edinburgh.
Jacek placed second in the Area 30 International Speech Contest and John won the Area 30 Evaluation Contest.
Because Division S has only 3 Areas (Area 30, Area 43 and Area 60), the first and second placed winners are allowed to compete in the next round. Usually,it’s just speakers who have been placed first.
This means that Jacek, as well as John, will represent Area 30 in the Division S Contest on Saturday 18th April in Falkirk.
Good luck to both Jacek and John!
