Student Speaker Contest Info Page

The contest for 2021 was cancelled because of Covid 19. None of the information below has been updated. It will be updated before the end of 2021 for next year’s contest.

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)
