On 22nd February 2021 St John Fisher College Vice Captain Caitlyn Douglas and College Captain Holly Megaw competed in the Lions Youth of the Year competition in the Bramble Bay chapter.
"Lions Youth of the Year is designed to encourage, foster and develop leadership in conjunction with other citizenship qualities in our youth, at the age when they are about to enter the fields of employment or higher education, and provides students with the incentive to pay greater attention to the general qualities, so vital in developing our youths into first class citizens."
The competition involved a 30-minute interview which accounted for 70% of their total score, two impromptu questions. One question posed the advantages and disadvantages of COVID19 restrictions and the other asked the girls to address the issue of youth crime followed by a five-minute speech on a topic of their choosing.
We are pleased to report that both girls did exceptionally well with Holly receiving the Public Speaking award and Caitlyn taking out Overall Winner. Caitlyn will go on to represent Bramble Bay and St John Fisher College at the Zones competition at Bracken Ridge Library on Saturday 6th March.
