Thousands of youngsters take part every year in our youth competitions which in most cases take the form of regional heats followed by a national final. The majority are categorised into junior, intermediate and advanced age groups.
Cooking amongst young people is a valuable life skill. Sponsored by Filippo Berio, contestants prepare and present a three-course meal within a pre-set budget and time limit, which is judged by an expert panel.
We encourage speaking and presentation skills in young people and this competition showcases superb quality speakers.
Music is an international language and we encourage talented young people by providing this opportunity to demonstrate their musical skills.
Photography is a talent and an ever popular art form. Entrants submit three photographs on a theme in black and white or colour, along with a description of the inspiration for their photographs.(More Info)
A flair for creative writing is a special gift and this competition promotes and encourages the work of young people who show talent. The winning writers are subsequently published in Rotary magazines.
Teams of students interested in engineering and science compete in a one-day event to devise and build a solution to an unseen technical task. Solutions are tested and judged against competing teams.
These showcase the citizenship and responsibilities demonstrated by people under the age of 25. Winners receive a cash prize of £500 at our annual conference where the awards are presented.
Our club works hard to support all these National events, but not all can be administered all the time, Please contact your local Rotary club for more information or if you have interest in a specific event.
