Coronado Lions Club Speaker Contest - Registration Deadline 2/15/18!

February 15, 2018


Coronado Lions Club Speaker Contest

On Monday, February 26, 2018, at 6:30 pm, the Coronado Lions Club will host its 81st Annual Student Speaker Contest at the Coronado Club Room and Boathouse at 1985 Strand Way. The building is off the one way portion of Strand Way past the City of Coronado recreation center and pool, and has its own parking lot.  This year’s topic is: "Integrity and Civility Play What Role in Today's Society?

Students residing in Coronado or Imperial Beach or attending any Coronado or Imperial Beach School in grades 9-12 may compete.  The speech should be between 5 and 10 minutes long.  The speech does not have to be memorized at this first club level.

The contest provides an opportunity for students to develop independent thinking about a pressing problem in today’s world.  Besides encouraging self-expression, the research the student speakers’ conduct helps promote a variety of solutions to shared problems and awards scholarship funds to the winners.

The contest will start at 6:30 pm.  The Club level winner and each finalist shall receive a cash prize.  The winners of the club level contests go on to compete at the zone, city and reginal levels until the final rounds at the state level where winners earn college scholarships. This year the Student Speakers Foundation will provide scholarships totaling more than $103,500.00.   Registration deadline is February 15.  Students wishing to register should email their name, phone and grade level to cadowney@cadowneylaw.com.  Anyone with questions about the contest should contact the Coronado Lions Club Speaker Contest Chair, Carrie Downey at 522-2040 or cadowney@cadowneylaw.com.
