Quest completed

The Lions Youth of the Year Quest was held once again in Millicent after two years of cancellation due to COVID.

Members and guests were privileged to be present recently at the Millicent Lions Den at the public speaking component of the Quest.

They heard from two local Year 12 students who very confidently presented a prepared speech and tackled impromptu topics.

Millicent High School students Eliza Dower won the club event and James D’Onghia received the public speaking award.

The Quest is a great opportunity for senior students as they prepare to launch themselves into the exciting world of adulthood.

It gives them an experience of what they can expect when they apply for a job, a university position, or any direction they choose for their life, where they will be dealing with adults, and often, dealing with the unexpected.

It is designed to encourage student interest in leadership and the qualities required to take an active and constructive role in the community and aims to encourage personality development, confidence, self-expression, citizenship, and leadership in young people.

Judging takes place over an interview and a public speaking event.

During the interview students talk about their activities at school, their work in the community and their general knowledge while the judges get to know their personality.

The Millicent Lions Club thanked judges former health administrator David Walshaw, retired educator Marg Lang and St Anthony’s teacher Julian Rebellato who gave their time to be involved.

Winners of each club event go on to the next round of the Quest to be held in the coming weeks at Kingston and Robe for the Lions Clubs District Final.
