Recently, the Chatham-Nauset Lions Club recognized three local high school students for their participation in the annual Massachusetts Lion Youth Speech Competition. Held each year, sophomores, juniors and seniors compete at the club or school level to determine who will go on to the zone, region, district and ultimately the state level.
The 2013-2014 speech topic is "How Do I Want To Be Remembered?". Students must be sponsored by a Lions member. At the Chatham-Nauset Lions Club competition, there was one winner, Jordan Frisbie of Chatham High School and two runner-ups, Jane Marks of Nauset Regional High School and Jonathan Morse of Chatham High School. The runner-ups each received a $50 prize.
Jordan Frisbie won a $100 prize and advanced through the zone level on Cape Cod onto the regional level in Plymouth where she was a runner-up. The winners of the regional level will advance onto the district level. The five district winners will compete at the final state level in a competition typically held in April or May at the annual Lions State Convention.
This year's Chatham-Nauset Lions Club co-chairs for the competition were Pat Bowlers and Hal Torrey. Learn more about the Massachusetts Lions Youth Speech Competition here. Learn more about the Chatham-Nauset Lions here.
