Youth Speech Competition this SundayPOSTED: 10/7/11 2:43 PM
GREAT BAY – JCI St. Maarten will have its annual Youth Speech Contest on Sunday at the PMIA Hall beginning at 4:00 p.m. This year’s topic is Be the change you want to see in the world. It was chosen as part of JCI International St. Maarten’s efforts to create positive impact by contributing to wellbeing of the people in the communities in which they serve.
This year’s participants are from Learning Unlimited, St. Maarten Academy, Milton Peters College and Caribbean International Academy. The winner of the local competition will get an all expense paid trip to Curacao to represent St. Maarten at the National Speech Contest. They will also win bragging rights and fabulous prizes.
“With all the negative cloud hanging over our youth, this is an event in which we can still be proud and positive about them. However, we need the support of everyone to come out and continue to encourage them on the right path. We hereby make an earnest appeal the schools, young people, parents and supporters to come out cheer on your favorite school or participant,” JCI St. Maarten Local President Lionel Lawrence said.
Refreshments will be on sale and the entrance fee is $2.00.
