Area contest – 10th October 2017

by Michelle Sabatini

What an evening!

Not only the clubs of Area 4 met and competed but also Area 2 joined the evening!

The result was 8 distinct contests during a single, very intense, evening that brought together around 50 members from 7 different clubs!

Margherita Brodbeck Roth and Daniela Ivanovovà chaired the evening with enormous professionalism. The positive energy they invested to organize and manage the evening were highly inspirational.

Margherita guided us through the humorous speech contest in English (one for A4 and one for A2), German and Italian. Daniela challenged the Table Topic Contestants of the 4 contests with 4 different questions:

  • If you were a superhero, which super power you would like to have? (English Contest A4)
  • What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses? (German Contest A4)
  • Where would you like to live if you had to leave this country? (English Contest A2)
  • Statistics says that 6-years-old laugh 300 times a day. Adults laugh 15 times. Why do kids laugh more than adults do? (German Contest A2).

The evening was not only a lot fun but also most rewarding for the contestants who were cheered and supported by the audience. The incredibly welcoming atmosphere helped the contestants to lose or rather control their nervousness and thus to excel in their performances.

Now, we are looking forward to the next step: the Division Contest.

From our Zuriberg club, Stefano, Hicham and Michelle will compete in the humorous speech contests (English and Italian) and the Table Topics Contest (English).

The Division Contest will take place on Saturday, 4th November in the Hallenstadium Zurich. From 12 to 17 o’clock.
