Inverness Culloden Rotary Club held their annual Roger Hoskins Public Speechmaking competition at Lochardil House Hotel on Tuesday evening.
Participants were required to write a speech responding to the topic ‘Are electric vehicles the real future of transportation?’ and deliver this from memory.
Erika Hedderwick — in her maiden competitive event — was ultimately declared overall winner, taking home an individual trophy and a trophy for the school. Her innovative approach to the motion, suggesting that the humble bicycle is in fact the real future of transportation, combined with passionate delivery and rich persuasive language showed her talent and true oratory skills.
Well done Erika!
