Short Speech on Corruption in English for Students and Children

3 minutes speech on Corruption for School and College Students

I would like to ask a question to my fellow friends. Which practice gave a bad name to our country? Most of you will say, child labour or illiteracy but in my opinion, it is corruption.

Good morning! Respected Principal, teachers and my dear companion. I stand before you to speak on the topic of corruption.

Corruption is a form of dishonesty and immoral behavior or activities. It has spread in our social and political life. It is spreading like cancer and eating our vitals.

Self-serving politicians and their agents can go to any extent to feather their own nest. It exists from top to bottom in our government offices because everyone wants their work to be done on a priority basis. Private gain is one of the reasons behind it.

Our country ranks in the most corrupted ones. We live in a country where bribery is used as a tool to make work done such as paying taxes or issue of licenses.


Due to corruption, many deserving people fail to get desired jobs and admissions in universities and schools as these places are already corrupted by favoritism and nepotism.

This is quite an old and very unfair practice. This has brought instability in society. It is usually practiced by rich citizens of the country.

Corruption is a curse to our society and we should all come forward to remove this curse.

Putting up hidden cameras at workplaces would help in preventing corruption as it will bring fear of being caught among the people. It is a high time to take some steps. Tough and strict laws should be made by the government as it is very important in preventing corruption.

We students can organize anti-curse rallies in areas of our school. Students should talk to their parents to not encourage this evil. So let us join our hands and cut the wings of the third devil. Hopefully, our country can get rid of corruption.

Thank you.
