Youth speakers win national debating competition

NEHA Mehta, Georgia Scott and Bea Bacon, from The Red Maids’ School in Bristol, have won the national 2016 Rotary Club ‘Youth Speaks’ Competition.

The journey started in February when they beat local schools in the district heats.

Next they travelled to Wolverhampton to face tough competition from across the region.

Having won the regional round, they travelled to Manchester in May to take on the very best teams from schools across the country.

The girls spoke about ‘Introverts’ with great poise and confidence to be crowned the 2016 winners.

Describing this annual event, the Rotary Club said: “We encourage speaking and presentation skills in young people and this competition showcases superb quality speakers.”

The girls received their winning trophies from Peter Davey, the President of the Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland.
