History of Art Student triumphs in Public Speaking Competition

Connie O'Conor won the South East Regional Heat of the Articulation public speaking competition held at the Quarterhouse, Folkestone on Wednesday 8th February; Connie's prize was a copy of Honour and Fleming's A World History of Art and a year's membership of the Art Fund.

Connie now attends the Final at Clare College Cambridge on Saturday 3 March, with adjudication by Jon Snow.
The judges praised Connie's passion for her subject - 'The Aztec Double-headed Serpent - A Beautiful Divide', her relaxed and confident presentation, her interest in cross-cultural aesthetics, and the way that she took them on her own research journey.

The judges were Alastair Upton, Chief Executive of the Creative Foundation, and artist Brigitte Orasinski. Connie was also congratulated by the Mayor of Shepway and by Madeleine Bessborough, trustee and founder of the Roche Court Educational Trust which runs the ARTiculation Prize with Cambridge University. Other schools competing were Astor College, Folkestone School for Girls and King's Canterbury.
