Results of the Rotary Youth Speaks 2017-18 District Final

Congratulation to all 22 teams, sponsored by 18 rotary clubs throughout Cumbria and Lancashire, that made it through their local heats to compete at this year’s district final. The teams were all worthy winners. They impressed the audience with confidence, clarity of speech through a variety of interesting well-rehearsed topics. What a fantastic day!!

The event was held at Windermere School on Saturday 3rd February and many teachers attending have since complimented the organisation of the event, the standard of judging and the excellence of the teams – all achieved an extremely high standard.
