Oratory contest “Demostene”

We all know that Interact Club Chișinău is part of a district called 2241. Well, the district has its own “national” projects and “Demostene” is one of them. It is a contest of oratorical abilities and public speaking skills, where our participants had to deliver a speech in front of an audience and three experienced judges. There were given two topics for the speech: “Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.” – Francisco Goya or “Reason is the slow and tortuous method by which these who do not know the truth discover it.” – Blaise Pascal. No doubt, the emotions were heightened and the contestants were unnerved, however they managed to set their fears aside and gave the performances of their lifetime. The first place was given to a young, but full of perspectives girl named Irina Guțu, who amazed both the judges and the viewers by her visions on the chosen topic and by her power of connecting to every single person in the room.  Afterwards, she was offered the possibility of representing our country at the international phase in Pitești, Romania.
