Thirty cadets from the military, naval, air force and nursing academies faced off in the 1st Cadet Public Speaking Competition held at the Korea Military Academy (KMA) in Nowon District, northern Seoul, on Friday.
The contest, co-hosted by the KMA and the Korea JoongAng Daily, was the latest project between the university and the paper to boost cooperation in English education. Both sides signed a memorandum of understanding toward that goal a month ago.
Cadets were given five minutes to explain in English how cadet life has changed the way they think and act in front of judges from the KMA, the Korea JoongAng Daily and the Committee of ITT.
The Grand Prize went to Lee Ha-min, a senior at the KMA, who explained how she managed to go from denying others’ thoughts that were different from her own to accepting those ideas through her four years at the university. Lee Jeong-yeon, a sophomore at the Republic of Korea Naval Academy, and Yang Eun-ju, a sophomore at the Korea Armed Forces Nursing Academy, both went home with the Gold Prize.
Silver prizes went to Jo Yo-han, a junior at KMA; Cho Chang-hyun, a junior at the Korea Air Force Academy; and Kim Ji-won, a sophomore at KMA. Bronze prizes were awarded to Ryu Eun-jin, a sophomore at the Korea Armed Forces Nursing Academy; Eom Sae-jin, a sophomore at the Korea Air Force Academy; and Ju Young-jun, a senior at KMA.
Winners of the Participation Prize were Kwak Ji-hyeon, a junior at KMA; Jeong Ji-hee, a sophomore at the Korea Armed Forces Nursing Academy; and Kang Min-soo, a senior at KMA.
Creative prizes were awarded to Jung Kyung-won, a sophomore at KMA; Bae Young-jun, a freshman at KMA; and Kim Hyun-il, a sophomore at the Korea Air Force Academy.
Winners of the grand and gold prizes will be invited to the Korea JoongAng Daily’s annual Public Diplomacy [JB emphasis] Night next Wednesday in Gangnam District, southern Seoul, where Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon will give a presentation on public diplomacy to a crowd including ambassadors and their spouses.
The contest was sponsored by U Education, the Committee of ITT and the International Tour Travel Agency. The cadet public speaking competition will be held annually. Cooperation between the Korea JoongAng Daily and the KMA goes back to mid-September, when junior cadets majoring in English visited the media company’s newsroom to learn about journalism.
