National Australia Bank Lions Youth of the Year Quest


​The students began the process by thoroughly outlining their contribution to the school and local community, interests, academic grades and career prospects. They then participated in a half hour interview with a panel of three judges from the local community.

Students, parents, teachers and members of the Coolum Beach Lions Club and Coolum Beach Lioness Club attended the speaking part of the competition.  Each student was given two impromptu topics and had to respond for two minutes – definitely not an easy task.  Students then delivered a prepared five minute speech and wowed the audience with topics ranging from Russian politics to the habits of a sloth.

The judges had a tough decision to make but finally called the winners:

Lions Youth of the Year (and Public Speaking Award) – Jasper M.

Lioness Youth of the Year – Lara C.
