2019 Lions Youth of the Year Program
Glenroy college has a long tradition of entering some of our finest VCE students in the Lions Youth of the Year Competition. It involves an interview with a panel of judges prior to the competition evening. This interview gives the contestants an opportunity to showcase their involvement in academic, cultural and sporting aspects of the community as well as any particular leadership qualities they have.
The competition evening sees students compete against those from other schools in a prepared five minute speech as well as the more daunting impromptu speaking section where they address two unseen/unprepared issues in Australian society.
This year, Glenroy College had a number of students compete, with Mohammed in year 10 taking home an award for Public Speaking. Congratulations to all contestants!
