QEP Student Events

The QEP sponsors two annual events for students: the Words That Changed History Day in the fall and the Student Speakers Showcase in the spring. Both events are competitions that feature student speakers. The winners are awarded gift cards.

Words That Changed History Day

Throughout history, words have sparked revolutions, advocated freedom, averted conflict and inspired nations. The Words That Changed History Day event features students delivering famous speeches from history. A student will select a speech from a list posted below and apply to present it. The QEP Student Events Committee will schedule auditions and select speakers for the event. This event is held each fall, usually in November. The guidelines for the event are linked below. The deadline for applying to present and audition dates will be posted in September.
