With the objectives of encouraging contestants to hone their public speaking skills on a nationwide platform; fostering closer bonds among contestants and enthusiasts in a conducive and interactive environment; showcasing the varied talents of contestants and allow for facilitated skills exchange and; challenging the contestants to think fast on their feet and respond cogently to an impromptu speech topic, Public Speaking academy invited schools to send a maximum number of 10 contestants to compete in the quest for the best public speaker. Representatives are sifted through the deliberation of the schools.
The competition has three phases which are the registration, qualifying rounds, and grand finals. In the first stage which is the registration, participating schools can register a maximum number of 10 students at the individual category: They will then proceed to the qualifying rounds where 10 students will be selected to advance into the Grand Finals per category. In the Grand finals, the Champion, 1st-runner up and 2nd-runner up will be selected. The Champion will be crowned the National Champion of Public Speaking. In addition, all finalists will be awarded a trophy.
