Lions Youth of the Year

​Home Hill SHS LYOY participants

​On Monday 24 February, five year 12 students participated in the 2014 Lions Youth of the Year quest.  This year’s participants included Katelyn Shepherd, Mackenzie Falco, Kimberley Bourke, Kate Neal and Reece D’Alessandro.

Throughout the day of competition, each senior student was interviewed by a panel of community representatives at the high school, before delivering a prepared speech and two impromptu speeches in the evening at The Crown Hotel - Home Hill.  Prepared speeches included topics such as ‘An Ode to Can,’ ‘Born to Run,’ and even ‘Australian Identity.’ The judges were most impressed by the entrants, commenting that, each entrant had his/her own set of strengths.  

Reece D’Alessandro was declared Lions Youth of the Year for 2014 and was named winner of the Public Speaking category.  Reece will progress to the next round of the competition which will be held on Saturday March 15.
