Hello. It’s the bee season again. This year we are conducting Public Speaking Bee again in addition to Math Bee, Spelling Bee, Vocabulary Bee, Science bee and Geography Bee contests by North South Foundation for Indian American children. The Public Speaking and Science Bee contests will be in March while all others will be in April.
We are planning to have Public Speaking workshop and intermediate science (grade 4 and 5) bee workshop on Sunday February 15th. For the first time, we are planning to have free NSF Portland Public Speaking workshop by renowned and reputed public speaking coaches Cathey Armillas (TED Speaking Coach and Organizer) and Darren LaCroix ( 2001 Public Speaking Champion 2001).
Saturday February 15th (at Intel Jones Farm Conference Center)
