**Due to low number of entrants, the heats have now been combined into one competition being held in Sheffield on the 15th February. **  

What is SOfE?

Each year the IMechE's local volunteer groups organise Speak Out for Engineering (SOfE) - a competition where you can  demonstrate and develop your verbal and visual presentation skills as well as your competence in public speaking.

Effective communication of technical content is essential in every engineering industry, be it when speaking to partners across the globe or even conveying an approach to one of your team members. Many industries face strict guidelines and regulations that they must adhere to - clear and unambiguous communication is key to ensuring your work is represented accurately.
Any topic related to engineering is suitable for this competition. You do not need to provide overly technical content, we only want to understand how you communicate.

SOFE provides the perfect opportunity to flex your skills and pick up tips to develop them - all with the added bonus of some prize money if you impress the judges!

1st prize: £300 + certificate
2nd prize: £200 + certificate

The North Yorkshire Area Heat will see presenters from around the area competing for a place in the Yorkshire final.

Any Affiliate or Associate IMechE member and all Registered members who have been registered for 10 years or less.
