The Norfolk Lions are pleased to announce its annual Youth Speech Competition. This contest is open to any high school student in grades 9 through12. You must reside in Norfolk but can attend any high school or be home schooled. This year’s speech topic is "Respect: Where Has it Gone?”.
The registration deadline is November 17. Speeches will be presented on Thursday, December 4 at the Norfolk Public Library. The first place winner receives $100. The winner then moves up to the next level and competes in January against students from other towns in Massachusetts.
To register for the contest go to www.lionsspeech.webs.com. You will also find a Student Handbook and complete set of guidelines for the competition on this site.
This competition provides an opportunity for students to speak publicly on a designated topic of general interest. It is an excellent forum through which to display your talents and accomplishments. The Norfolk Lions hope you will participate in this statewide competition!
