The Get Set to Ace It! summer competition 2016 asked students to create their own motivational speech to send to the GB athletes competing at the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Although the competition is now closed, you can still use our presentation to help you inspire your students about writing or filming their own motivational speech.
The winners of the competition this year were:

Eaton Bray Academy, Dunstable – Audio speech by Nathaniel (PDF version)

Beauchamps High School, Wickford – Written speech by Beth Edson, Terri Louca, Evie Robinson and Frankie Bartlett

These speeches were sent to athletes in Rio. The classes also won an experience day at The National Tennis Centre in London, with runners-up winning free tennis equipment for their school and a year’s free schools tennis membership (with the chance to access tickets to Wimbledon in 2017).
