On the afternoon of Saturday 9 March, we were the hosts of the Regional Youth of the Year Final. And what a great final it was with a big attendance to match the quality of the event and the students who took part. They, and their chosen public speaking topics were as follows: Lilian Law from Alstonville H.S. Aged Care in the Community; Jaidah Fergus-Mackie from Lindisfarne Grammar 0Murrwillumbah, Skin; Finn Ball from Alstonville High, The Hero’s Journey; Jesse Marshall from St. Mary’s Catholic HS, Failing and Learning; Amanda Widen-Battaglini from Kingscliffe HS Arts and Sciences, and Matthew Wareing from Mullumbimby HS Changing of Technology.
They were an inspiring group of young people. The winner, who will progress to the next level, was Finn Ball who won not only the public speaking component, but the overall Youth of the Year competition. All are to be congratulated for a fine effort. Thanks must also go to the NAB for sponsoring this event again, to the judges who worked very hard on the day, to Lions Don and Helen for running the event and to all the other Lions and their wives who made the competition such a success.
