Your speech should fit between 4 - 6 minutes. Consider some of the following elements for your speech:
-Flowing explanation of your work selected (have a common thread that connects your selections)
-Strong descriptive vocabulary
-What artists/photographers inspire you
-Some people use personal stories, some use humor, some use strong conceptual thinking and philosophies...decide on the tone of your speech. Figure out how to captivate the audience. Throwing a laugh or a smile or two in can help connect to the audience...but don’t force it. Be unique, be clever, but most of all be yourself!
Here are three previous RHS speakers:

Seniors will present their speeches to Mr. Borja and Mr. English for review and selection. Good luck!
