DISTRICT 46 LIONS

2014-15

STUDENT SPEAKERS CONTEST

 

 

The Lions Clubs of District 46 are proud to sponsor our 8th Annual Lions Student Speakers Contest for our area high school students.  This enables the students to earn scholarships to help continue their higher education.

 

A total of $6,450 Scholarship to the Overall Winner.  $1,250 Scholarship to the Region Winner!

 

Our challenging topic for this year is:

 

IMMIGRATION REFORM

 

This thought provoking subject will give our youth the opportunity to explore in depth a topic that is of vital interest here and abroad; and one that needs immediate attention.

 

  • Club contest - the club shall present $25 to each finalist and $75 to the winner.
  • Zone contest - the District presents $125 to the winner.
  • Region contest - the Lions Student Speaker Foundation awards a $1,250 scholarship to the winner.
  • District contest - the Lions Student Speaker Foundation awards a $5,000 scholarship to the winner.

 

The scholarships awards are granted for use at any accredited two or four year college, university, or to any other school approved by the Lions of District 46 Student Speaker Foundation, Inc.

 

The purpose of the contest is to provide an opportunity for competitive public speaking among students on a subject of vital interest to the contestants, as well as to the American people as a whole; and to stimulate self-expression and independent thinking.

 

The contest is open to students, including foreign exchange students, grades 9 through 12, of any high school, charter school, private school or home school.

A Real Birthday Party 2/26/14

The party at the Reno Women's Shelter was a hit and everyone enjoyed it... kids, their parents and the Lions who were present.
 
McDonalds donated 'Be My Guest' coupons for a free Ice Cream Cone or a Cheeseburger or French Fries - these were the hit at the Pumpkin Toss Game!  All the kids received stickers throughout the evening and all enjoyed coloring the pictures spread out on several tables.  The El Dorado Hotel cupcakes were a hit with the kids and Lions George, Eric, Ken and Lorraine as they tried both the chocolate and lemon cupcakes!
 
Sparks Greenbrae Lions also donated 40 personal hygiene kits, a few dozen socks and a box of shampoo tubes donated by the Peppermill Hotel.
