Location: Virtual event on Zoom and streamed live on HISD Abroad's YouTube, IG, and Twitter accounts

The speeches and performances will be performed live, but you must submit a video of your performance or speech by May 23rd. Videos should be emailed to:

The video serves two purposes:

1. If you have technical difficulties during the event, we will play the video you submitted instead.
2. It ensures you have practiced your speech or performance.

We can only live stream 10-12 speeches or performances depending on the total length. Those that submit their videos sooner will be given priority.
