LANCASTER — The Antelope Valley Lions Club was host to the 82nd annual Student Speakers Contest on March 5 at the Salvation Army Chapel on Sierra Highway.

For 82 years, Lions clubs all over the country have conducted a contest to find the brightest public speakers in local schools and give them the tools they need to succeed. This particular round was at the zone level, (District 4 — L1 Zone A).

There are three more rounds with the final winner earning a schol­ar­ship of $10,000. This year, the club (An­tel­ope Valley Ex­ec­utives Lions Club) didn’t have any young members who wished to participate. How­ever, the club pres­i­dent presided over the con­test, along with three other judges from the com­munity.
