Youth Of The Year
Each year the Lions provide an opportunity for secondary school students to participate in the Lions Youth Of The Year program. The competition is intended to select the high achieving students from schools and through a series of interviews and public speaking events eventually select a winner from each state who then participate in a national final at the Lions National Convention held in April/May of each year.
The event is generously sponsored by the National Australia Bank
The 2018 competition at club level was won by Alexandria Pronk from Xavier Catholic College for Fraser Lions and Lily Moon from Fraser Coast Anglican College for the Hervey Bay Lioness. Both Alexandra and Lilly will be going on to the Zone final in Maryborough.
All students in grade 11 or 12 are encouraged to participate - see your english department for details. It is a perfect opportunity to build your confidence and to meet and interact with like-minded students from other schools
The Fraser Lions Club's YOTY final is held in conjunction with the Hervey Bay Lioness Club so providing two students to the next level (zone final).
