CVESDTALKS



The Chula Vista Elementary School District Speech Contest has changed its name. The event is now titled “CVESD
TALKS.” Over the years, we have showcased student’s abilities to give amazing presentations with the focus of developing public speaking skills. In the last two years, CVESD has celebrated student presentations on a TEDx stage. Selected fourth grade through high school students have given their talk to a live audience at TEDxKids@ChulaVista and TEDxChulaVista. Student talks have been viewed over 100,000 times on YouTube and the TED website (TEDxkidsChulaVista.com).
