Lions Youth of the Year 2018

The last two weekends have seen the local round of Lions Youth of the Year competitions for the Malanda, Millaa Millaa and Yungaburra clubs.  Lions Youth of the Year is a national competition to find the youth leader of Australia.
A total of 110 marks are awarded, and 80 of these come from community leadership and iinvolvement of the young person. The presentation of public speaking and general manners only account for 30 marks. 
There are five levels of the competition, culminating in a national final. The National Youth will win $5000 and a considerable travel prize which would normally amountt to 2 or three weeks travel.
The next round of competition is the District final to be held in Mareeba. We wish our competitors, Mikayla, Kasey, Ryan and Indio well for the event. Our school can be very proud of the effort and talent that hese people have put into their contribution to our community.
