INYS Speaking Competition – Indonesia Nederland Youth Society
The Indonesia Nederland Youth Society is pleased to announce the INYS Speaking Competition 2015. In collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia to the Kingdom of the Netherlands in The Hague.
With this INYS Speaking Competition we aim to stimulate young Dutch and Indonesians and all other interested international students and young professionals to connect and learn more about each other’s heritage (e.g. speak each other’s language, get to know traditions, culture, food, etc.). We challenge participants to prepare a speech in a foreign langue. The competition will consist of two categories. One category for Dutch and international participants, who are invited to prepare a speech in either Bahasa Indonesia or English. The second category consists of Indonesian participants, who are invited to prepare a speech in Dutch or English. Students with a different nationality with an interest in the Netherlands and Indonesia are also encouraged to take part in the speaking competition.
The INYS will provide a platform where the participants are given the opportunity to present their speech before an audience and a jury. This will create an excellent occasion for them to learn experience and get used to public speaking in a foreign language, which will enable them to grow more confident in their language skills. Eventually this competition may create extra stimulants for both Dutch and Indonesian students and young professionals to learn from each other and connect, which in turn contributes to fostering the relations between both countries on a youth level.
All candidates willing to participate in the speaking competition (hereinafter: the competition) should upload a short video-pitch of themselves onto their personal YouTube account. By sending a link of the video to email@example.com, the INYS team will be able to access the video.
This video should contain the following information when submitted:
The INYS Executive Board will select which candidates will participate in the semi-finals. The semi-finals will be held in Leiden, Groningen, Wageningen and Tilburg.
In a preliminary selection round, held prior to the semi-finals in each city, but on the same day as the semi-finals, five non-Indonesian participants and five Indonesian participants will give their speech before the jury of that day. The jury will select two non-Indonesian and two Indonesian participants that shall give their speech during the public semi-finals. During the public semi-final one non-Indonesian and one Indonesian shall be selected to participate in the finals. The semi-finals are part of the INYS speaking competition and college tour, besides the speeches given by the selected four participants, a guest speaker will give a lecture on an Indonesian related topic during each semi-final.
During the finals four non-Indonesian and four Indonesian winners of the semi-finals shall give their speech again. All finalists will receive a IND-NL dictionary provided by the KILTV (Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies). At the end of the final day, one non-Indonesian and one Indonesian winner shall be announced. There will be a different prize for the non-Indonesian winner and the Indonesian winner. Both winners will win a unique cultural experience.
