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.
