Rotary District 1285

DISTRICT YOUTH SPEAKS COMPETITION 

                        Intermediate and Senior Level Competition 2017-18

    

The Youth Speaks Competition is one of Rotary’s most successful and well supported programmes. It provides a wonderful platform for young people to develop and perform, and is a tremendous demonstration the talents of the young people involved and an example of Rotary at its best. I trust it will once again capture the imagination of many fine young orators and build a strong group of younger competitors.

The main source of information for clubs and schools is the Information Pack. The latest update (October) is now available.

Two significant updates are as follows. The deadline for getting team names and topic details to Warren Heyes is December 9th and the form is on page 10. Clubs can now pay entry fees by bank transfer instead of by cheque if they prefer. Details on page 7.

 The competition timetable is as follows. This can be updated during the year so always check this webpage to make sure you have the latest information
