Round 1, Student Speakers Contest, Burbank
Round 2, Student Speakers Contest, Chinatown
Congratulations to our Civitas students Veronica and Darlene! They recently participated in the 2014 Lions Club Student Speakers Contest. This year’s speech topic was “Community Service: What does it mean and why does it matter?”
Veronica and Darlene presented their speeches in the first round in Burbank, and both won college scholarships! Veronica was invited back to speak at the second round, in a restaurant in Chinatown, against students from three other Los Angeles high schools. We’re so proud of you both!
All Civitas SOL students are invited to participate in the Lions Club Student Speakers Contest! The question for this year’s contest is: “Community Service: What does it mean and why does it matter?”
Students need to write and prepare a speech about the topic. The speech can be no longer than 10 minutes. For the complete rules of the contest, click here.
You must turn in the draft of your speech to Mr. Nittle by Friday, January 17, 2014.
We will select the top three speakers from Civitas to represent us at the local competition against representatives from other nearby high schools.
Extra credit opportunity for English classes.
Contact Mr. Nittle if you have any questions.
