Meet your virtual Speakers Idol 2020 finalists

May 7, 2020


When we initially set the Speakers Idol submission deadline for March 12, 2020 we had no way of knowing that this would also mark the beginning of a lengthy global shutdown that would forever change our world. Students from across Ontario submitted their speeches commenting on Simon Wiesenthal's famous quote:

"Freedom is not a gift from heaven, you must fight for it every day"

The Education Team at FSWC immediately began brainstorming ways to host Speakers Idol in a way that was conscious of social distancing measures and that kept everyone safe. We are proud to bring you the first Virtual Speakers Idol finale on Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 at 7:00 pm direct to your home. To register for the Speakers Idol Zoom Finale please contact

Below you'll be able to meet your finalists and watch their video submissions. These will be evaluated by a panel of judges during the finale and winners will be announced that night.
