Stanton Lions Hold Speech Contest


Stanton Lions Host Speech Contest for students

Anaheim, CA, December 06, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The Stanton lions will hold a speech contest for local students in the ninth through the twelfth grades on January 20th, 2010 at 6:00PM. The contest will be at the Stanton Lions Club House located near the intersection of Beach and Cerritos. This is part of the Lions Clubs speech contests which will award more than $21,000 in scholarships.

The Stanton Lions want to provide an opportunity for students to participate in public speaking as a way of helping student prepare for college, stimulate self-expression, and independent thinking. This year’s topic is on changes to our health care system.

Stanton Lion David Parikh stated that “in today’s world it’s important that everyone have a voice. Stanton Lions have encouraged all students to participate. We have made a special outreach to students who have been under represented in previous speech contests including students with visual challenges, students who are learning English as a second language, and students with learning disabilities. We have contacted all the local schools and expect a good turn-out. Although it is called a contest, there are no real winners or losers. This is an educational opportunity for students to develop their communication skills. We will focus on a student’s abilities rather than her or his disabilities. Public speaking is challenging for everyone!”

Please contact Stanton Lion’s Speech contest coordinator John Doogan at (714) 380-0433.
