Bethany claims Lions Youth of the Year title
Written on the 3 May 2016 by scotch
The Lions Youth of the Year state final was held at the Clare Country Club during the school holidays, with six young students competing for the right to represent South Australia at the national final in Echuca this month.
The large audience was inspired by the presentation of the prepared speeches, with topics ranging from "When did Maths and Science stop being cool?" to the rewriting of history and the gender spectrum.
Following their prepared speeches, the six students were put to the test with impromptu questions, which they handled very well, giving the judges a difficult time in determining the winner.
Winner of the public section was Ricky-Lee Peita from Hope Christian College, sponsored by Elizabeth Playford Lions Club, with a humorous presentation "On History's Page."
After making her way through the four rounds on the Youth of the Year program, the overall winner was announced as Bethany Williams of Scotch College Adelaide, sponsored by Mitcham Lions Club.
Other competitors were Connor Bakaj from Renmark, Ruby Eckermann from Murray Bridge and Amy Langdon from Balaklava.
"These six young students from South Australia gave our judges a challenge to decide who would be our Youth Ambassador for the next 12 months and, indeed, the winner was chosen by mere points out of the 110 allocated," C1 District Chairman and State Coordinator SA/NT, Ken Bradford said.
Even though the state final has only just been completed, the 2017 Youth of the Year program will start in this district shortly.
"Once again, clubs, schools, students and families will begin the journey which will deliver so many life learning experiences to those who choose to participate, in a program supported by all Lions Clubs in Australia as a Lions activity for the benefit of our youth."
