Story of the Week: Canadian Lions Nurture Skills in Youth with Speech Contest
Lions create unique education opportunities for young people through our Lions Youth Camps and Lions Quest. In Canada, the Paris Lions Club hosts a Public Speaking 29Contest for young people to instill confidence, develop speech skills and help prepare them for the working world.
Sixteen students delivered speeches at the second annual event this spring. The club offered cash prizes for the top three speakers. Judges scored the students on categories like their choice of topic, ability to articulate ideas and clarity of voice.
In this behind-the-scenes video, you’ll see some of the students speaking and receiving prizes.
