Student Speaker Contest Info Page

The decision has been made to change the contest to a virtual contest because of the Covid-19 concerns. We will post additional information as soon as it is available.

As a potential student speaker, you need to contact your local Lions Club to see if they are holding a student speaker contest. You can also check with your local high school counselor or principal for additional information. Remember, the Lions contest does not allow visual aides, uniforms, costumes, props.  Begin by reading and fully understanding the Student Handbook (rules) 

The Student Speaker Committee, with the recommendation of SS Foundation and with the approval of the COG have changed the start date of the MD4 Student Speaker Contest. The Student Speaker handbook will reflect the following new dates:
No Club Contest can be held before March 1, 2021
New Contest Schedule:
Club Level – on or before 3/15/2021
Zone Level – on or before 3/29/2021
Region Level – on or before 4/19/2021 District Level – on or before 5/03/2021
Area Level – on or before 5/17/2021
Final contest at the Joint COG Sat of 2021
Further information will be presented if COVID-19 pre-vents holding public meetings.
