With the theme "Modern Electronics in Our Daily Lives," participants were challenged to present their ideas and views on how electronic technology influences our daily lives. Not only that, the participants also showed extraordinary adaptability in facing challenges and pressure during the contest. They were able to prepare well in a short time, overcome nervousness, and deliver their explanations confidently and clearly. A spirit of healthy competition was also visible among the participants, who supported and encouraged each other.

Apart from the participants, the committee also plays an important role in the success of this event. They have worked hard to carefully prepare and organize every detail of the event, from technical to logistics. Their dedication and hard work have ensured that the event runs smoothly and efficiently, providing a satisfying experience for all participants and spectators. Of course, one cannot forget the role of the jury in assessing and selecting winners from among all the talented participants.

Their decisions are based on strict criteria, including speech content, speaking ability, argument structure, and clarity of delivery. The judging process is carried out fairly and transparently, ensuring that each participant has an equal opportunity to compete. Thus, the ISTTS English Speech Contest is not just a competition event, but also an important learning and self-development tool for the participants. This event has opened doors for exploration of creative ideas, exchange of views and improvement of communication skills.
