International public speaking competition

2020 Applications are now open

High school competition

Are you a student in the last 2 years of high school? It's time to prove your English communication and presentation skills.

LCC International University is an American style university based in Klaipeda, Lithuania providing American-style education, fully accredited, and the language of instruction is English.

Being a truly international university where 73% of all students are international students coming from more than 50 different countries and two thirds of our professors are English speakers from the USA and Canada, LCC International University wants to promote the use of English as a language for further studies as well as reward students who excel in their studies. LCC International University has partnered with schools in Eastern Europe since 2004 as we believe our University to be a great educational establishment for many future students. In our gratitude to our friendship with the schools and the Educational departments, we present LCC International English Public Speaking Competition as a way for students to be motivated to learn English well as this international language provides many opportunities for the future.

“Countless Precious Memories”

LCC was my home away from home for just a few days, but in that time I’ve made countless precious memories and met some of the most amazing people this world has to offer. I will be forever grateful to my roommates who welcomed me so warmly, to the staff who organized the competition and our trip to beautiful Lithuania, and to my opponents who made the competition so memorable and turned the competitive atmosphere into a warm and friendly one. Since my prize is one free semester there, see you soon, LCC!"
