The 2023 Nyquist speech contest winners are in. Megan Braun, Marketing Manager at Amazon Go, and Karli Casto, Founding Principal at pilotED Schools, served as the judges. Both Megan and Karli coached in the Center years ago when they were undergrads at UW.

This year, the contest was open to all UW undergraduates. Students submitted speeches in response to the theme: Who is a great public speaker? Students could talk about well-known figures from history or someone who may not be widely recognized, but whose oratory skills have left a lasting impact on them

1st place (tie). Jamie Christensen

Thank you to all who entered and the judges for making another speech contest a success!
