The Student Speakers Contest is designed to raise awareness of public speaking as an important life skill. Each participating student will give a five to 10-minute speech on a subject of vital interest to the community. This year’s topic: “Social Media: Connects Us or Isolates Us?”
These contests are held statewide. Every finalist uses the same speech at each level. At the Pleasanton level, the winner receives a cash reward of $100. Winning students have the chance to earn scholarships of $4,500 and $6,500 as they advance, with the statewide winner receiving $10,000 in scholarship monies, making a total of $21,000 scholarships available.
Contestants must enter by Feb. 3, and the contest will take place on February 21st. For information on how to enter, visit www.pleasantonlionsclub.org
