Lions Youth

Lions Youth of the Year Quest, sponsored by the National Australia Bank, is a major program for Lions. Starting at club level, contestants are judged by a panel on their community participation, sporting, academic, and where their interests lie. 

Regional judging, took place at Club Sapphire recently. The local winner, Anna Auer of Eden Marine High School, contested Roslyn Love-Myer from Sapphire Coast Anglican College Bega and Rebecca Matthes from Snowy Mountains Grammar Jindabyne.

The overall winner was Roslyn. Her subject was youth mental health, encouraging youth to be themselves and not a statistic. She went on to the District final, in Narooma on March 12.
