Applications for the Quota Club Student of the Year Quest for the South East are now open. In the North of the Region from Moruya to Ulladulla and Braidwood The Quota Club of Batemans Bay is once again conducting their very popular Student of the Year Quest.
The Quest will be on Monday 26th June at the Soldiers Club in the Bay.
We are hoping that keen students from all of the high schools and colleges in years 10 and 11 will participate.
Students from Moruya, Broulee, Batemans Bay, Braidwood and Ulladulla are all eligible to take part in this quest.
The students have an individual interview before a panel of three judges where they are able to show their knowledge of current affairs as well as details of their own personal develpment and school achievements. This is then followed by a two part public speaking competition where they can showcase any topic they choose in a 4 minute speech and a 1 minute impromptu talk.
Last year’s Quest saw Batemans Bay’s Elise Toyer of St Peters College go through to the district final in Unanderra and Elise won the District Final! A wonderful achievement for Elise and her school and for the Quota Club of Batemans Bay. There is a monetary prize for the winners!
The evening is open to the general public to come along and hear these amazing young people give their speeches.
The Quota Club encourages students to enquire at their school as all of the relevant information is available now.
