This year we intend to continue to offer all of the Rotary Competitions available to the Young
People of Newtownabbey. The concentration of focus will depend on the declared interest from
the schools. Our main aim will be to generate enthusiasm for the many and varied competitions
that do exist. To that end I will be asking my committee to visit all the schools in the
Newtownabbey area and promote the age relevant competitions.
Young Chef Competition
This is the 6th year we have been involved with this competition and so far it has always been
well supported. As in previous years we will use a local chef to help us make the right selection. If
we get a lot of entries it may be necessary to stage a local competition.
Young Photographer Competition
After a good start, year before last, we only had one entry for this competition last year. With
prior publicity and plenty of information to the schools we expect to improve on this situation for
Other competitions the club is considering are
Youth Leadership/Development Competitions
All schools and colleges in the local community, will be informed of the programme of projects by
writing and by a visit of a committee member. Publicity of the competitions will be in the local press to showcase the work of the young people at a display in the local community.
All schools and colleges, in the local community, will be informed of the programme of projects
available and asked to respond to indicate interest in participation.
