Speech Symposium 2017

International Sikh Youth Speech Symposium organized by SYANA 2017


Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

The enthusiastic young Kaurs & Singhs of Tampa Gurdwara participated in the prestigious International Sikh Youth Symposium (#syana2017) organized by Sikh Youth Alliance of North America (#syana). The local-leg of the symposium was held in Tampa, FL in Apr 2, 2017 and the regional-leg was held in Atlanta, Georgia on May 27, 2017. Our young speakers performed exceedingly well in these events. The winners of Regional-symposium qualified to participate in a pool of around 70 International winners.


The International Symposium (#IntlSYS2017) was held between Aug 3-Aug 6, 2017 at Gurdwara Guru Nanak Darbar, Duncan, South Carolina. The participants were divided into four age-based groups. The competition was tough, the participants were spectacular and the performances were spellbinding! In the International-leg of the event, Gurmastak Singh (group 3) from Tampa, received the Distinguished Speaker along with Punjabi Speaking award.

All the groups were deservedly swept mostly by the Kaurs! Here are all the speeches of the Tampa Gurdwara speakers:



As we eagerly look forward to be a part of #syana2018. 🙂
