Declamation Contest

Youth are the nursery of our society and the future flag bearers of Pakistan. We are convinced that the youth is the engine of positive change. NAB invites students of Universities, Colleges and Schools running within the geographical jurisdiction of NAB Lahore to help raise awareness against corruption and corrupt practices. The competitors of different categories prove their flair mesmerizing the audience with their thought provoking speeches. Speeches are judged on the basis of content, style, confidence and overall impact by carefully selected group of examiners in a transparent manner.     

NAB Lahore organizes Declamation Contests for the following categories:

  • Primary Level (Grades 1 to 5)
  • Secondary Level (Grades 6 to 10)
  • College/ University Level (Students from colleges/ universities)

All three categories are further segregated into two groups of English and Urdu declamations. Topics are related to the moral values like honesty and truth, self-accountability, credibility etc. The top positions holders in each level of the competitions are presented with merit certificates and cash prize. Each participant in the competition will be encouraged at all possible fronts and awarded participation certificates.

NAB conducts these Declamations contests every year regularly in Lahore. Thousands of students, teachers and representatives of civil society gather to encourage the performance of contestants. These programmes are arranged in the best available Halls of Alhamra, Punjab University, UET and VU etc. Healthy and secure environment is ensured so that the participants may enjoy the spirit of the programmes with zeal and zest.
