The Youth Speech Competition provides an opportunity for students to speak publicly and freely on a designated topic of general interest. It starts at the Hopkinton Lions Club level and proceeds through several levels of competition ending several months later with a state-wide competition. In between there are zone, region, and district levels of competitions where the winner of each level has the opportunity to proceed to the next level.
Each contestant will be judged on delivery, effectiveness and text of speech. This year’s topic is: “With Which Historical Figure Would You Most Like to Speak?”
• Hopkinton Lions Club level Winner – $200 / Runner-up – $100
• Zone, Region and District levels of competition – at the discretion of District Governor.
• State Competition level – $1,500 to the winner and $500 to each runner up.
To be eligible:
• Student must be in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade
