I want an original topic (not bullying,etc.) and it also kind of needs to be fun to talk about and research.

  12. urmom

  13. Speech topics should be taken from the current happenings, like these days Japan has been hit by a massive tsunami, you can deliver a speech on the reasons for earthquakes, how to survive in a natural calamity. You can deliver a speech on conservation of natural resources, or any renown historical figure.


  14. history of the oreo cookiee , uhh, life of a short person, do aliens reallyy exist.


  15. just do it about how i come and l**k your a*****e and then stick my whole fisat up your a*****e too :)

  16. im having a rlly had time choosing what topic to do but one i think is a rlly gud idea to do ur speech on is speeches . hope that helped :)

  17. Hey, i feel your pain !  How about Amelia Ehrheart, Martin luther king Junior, Soc's and Greasers  (from The outsiders by S.E. Hinton), Google, The Waltons, Beleive it or not?, kids in the white house, If i were to become president (prime minister), Ipod, Apple, The Future, The creation of earth, What is space?, American Idol, Music, Love, How the calander ever came to be, Famous artists( Michaelangello, Da Vinci,...),On the sea floor, What causes weather?,Fish Tales,Disney Land,Tuff & Tough,Constellations, Its the law,Gems,Train a Dolphin, Titanic, Periodic table, The joy of a baby, Extreme  Earth, Barnum and bailey greatest show on earth, Footbinding, Strange sites

    *Sorry, its alot to read but i hope it helped somebody, and good luck with your speeches! :)

    Good luck!!

  18. Thriumph over Adversity. Prision Alternatives. Human Evolution theories. Fear and Phobias. Twin Paradox.The words that you have to type in to answer this question written in distorted form. 8-) I'm nerdy and rockin' it!

  19. well i was thinking something on stress for teens, or animal abuse. my teacher wants something new and a current issue though and stuff like global warming wont cut it. i dont want to choose teen pregnancy or abortion or something because some people will think its weird and because the guys in my class would think i was crazy

  20. here are some topics:

    • superstitions

    • asian legends

    • human cloning

    • dolly the sheep

    I hope it helped

  21. do it on curry or laughing or buttons or  dhoom machaaaaaaaaaaalli or asian invasion or CHEEEEEESEZ WHIZZZZZZ or aboration or speaches.  Hope it helped honeyyy<3

    by the way call this number if u need my mom who is awesome at speeches.



  22.   winter. You could write about fun things to do (skiing, skating), the weather and Christmas brake (2 weeks of no school). Last year I did the olympics. I'm looking for topic too also grade 8 girl.

  23. im in grade 8 and i hate doing speeches. i think the reason i hate doing them is because i cant find a good topic. last year my topic was sharks because i didnt know what to do. this year though i think im going to do why people sleep walk and talk in their sleep. thanks girls any other good ideas?


  24. kso...i am in grade 8 too and have been considering many options for speech topics and think i finally decided on facebook because it is something that every grade 8 student would be interested in. but before that i thought about doing many other topics suuch as dreaming, albert einstien, 2012, eating disorders, animal abuse a famous singer actor that the class is interested in-rihanna, kesha or.... k'nan would be interesting because you could write not just about his career but his past leading up to what he is now it is actually really interesting. you should consider that as a topic. anyway global warming is a classic but often ends up being pretty boring, texting,favourite disney movies/ characters. world records..... anyways hope i helped ;)


  25.  I am in the same dilemma and i HAVE to win this year because it has always been my dream! I have previously done pretty good but grade 8 is a big deal and i want to make it cool, you know?

    I got some really good ideas, thanks guys! <3

    Such as:

    - History of the Barbie

    - Toilet Paper

    - Sayings ; Why did the chicken really cross the road

    - Laughter is the best medicine

    - Chocoholics

    - Human Cloning

    - Perfectionists

    - Eating your mucas is good for you

  29. I have to write a speech in French, so I'm in really deep. Last year in grade 6 I did my concours (speech) on birth order and how it affects your personality, among siblings.

  67. hi :) thesse are some I have used and gone far with :
    -why we are lucky to live in canada... ( i don't know if that's where you live... but you could do why you are lucky to live in U.S or Europe or wherever)
    - what's gonna happen in 2012
    -interview somebody old then compare there childhood from back in 1920s or wutever to yours

  68. imma grade 8 girl too. i need a speech topic by tomrrow!!!!! plz help!!

  69. You could do "why did the chicken really cross the road."

  70. haha im in, like, the exact same situation ! I'm a Year 8 girl and I'm needing to write an informative speech - due tomorrow. It's really important to look at your hobbies or something that you like doing as it makes the speech more interesting for you AND your audience. I know, you probably see this everywhere but it actually really helps. If you still can't think of anything, look at the things you like eg. books or tv shows or even a computer game.
    If you still can't think of anything, then you're ... stuffed.

  71. i was looking through all these posts and each year I final in the speeches so there's always huge pressure for my speech topic to be good and im starting mine in august so when it come time to do the speeches ill just have to memorize. hope that helps. as for topics i found interesting:

    human cloning
    laughter is the best medicine
    only children being spoiled (id might not do that since it might be offensive)
    sleepwalking (i might do that for an english essay)
    chocoholics (probably doing this one)
    how stores get free advertising
    uniforms in school (probably doing this one too)

    p.s. i go to avalon and am going in grade eight and am a girl so if you fit this discription plz dont take the probablys!!!! hope this helped seriously!!!

  72. need a maths topic for an interskul oral conference for grade 8????? ani BRILLIANT IDEAZ???

  73. broken headphones -->

  74. hi !

  75. the holocaust

  76. last year i did "social Justice"

    i am still stuggling for one this year though.
    Any thoughts?

  77. I did a speech on rubber ducks! it was fun and you would be surprised at the amount of information you can find about them. the audience was interested and it is very original.

  78. Well, last year (i was in grade five) and my speech topic was sharks, but not about them being mean, but ways that they improve our inviorment and how we can't live without them. I won first prize after going through 3 competitions. Im sorry im not a grade 8. But I am a girl! Also, speeches are coming up this year and I need a new topic, but if its any help, you need a topic that will make the listener not want to shut you up.
