Participants and their families share: "Youth of the Year"
Do you seek to gain experience in:
- Personal Improvement?
- Community Involvement?
- Public Speaking ?
The Lions Youth of the Year is aimed at all young people who seek to improve their skills before entering the workforce or other endeavours.
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 qualities sought, apart from academic attainments are those of leadership, personality, sportsmanship, public speaking and good citizenship. The students meet in fellowship and have the opportunity of open discussion, exchange of ideas and meet professional people of a community service Club organisation.
Youth of the Year is designed to encourage student interest in leadership and the qualities required to take an active and constructive role in the community. A high level of academic, leadership, sporting, public speaking and citizenship achievement is sought in its potential winners. By emphasising these qualities it hopes to provide outstanding role models for the youth of Australia and an overall increase in the confidence of young men and women.
Lions Youth of the Year is an excellent means of assisting Australia’s youth and promoting the essential role of leadership development and community service organisations in maintaining Australia’s high standard of living.
The main activities involved in the running of Lions Youth of the Year include initial promotion in schools and local communities; judging of candidates; selection and announcement of the national winner; arrangements for the winner’s overseas travel and attendance at an International Youth Camp and other finalists travel throughout Australia.
Youth of the Year begins in June/July and culminates with final judging and the announcement of the winners at the Multiple District Convention, normally held in May.
