Truth: Amherst College’s Speaking Competition

After a long hiatus, Amherst has revived its grand old tradition of a student public speaking competition. On Feb. 21, 2019, 10 students participated in “Truth: Amherst College’s Speaking Competition.” They spoke from memory, without notes or props, for seven minutes or less, on the subject of truth. Cash prizes were awarded to the top three winners, as judged by a faculty panel. Below are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
