Three min­utes to win glory

Central and North Burnett Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THREE min­utes is all it takes to sell ev­ery school a cow and solve which came first – the chicken or the egg.

Eigh­teen Year 6 and 7 stu­dents gave three-minute speeches at North Bur­nett’s lec­turette com­pe­ti­tion.

The 2013 win­ner, Eva Wal­lis from Mun­dub­bera, and Gayn­dah’s Caitlin Goldie tied for first place with their poised de­liv­er­ies.

Eva’s plea to com­bat child ex­ploita­tion came after she saw a “bit too graphic” news photo.

Caitlin Goldie showed pub­lic speak­ing wasn’t scary – if one started early.

Her key tips – learnt from her dad and lec­turette or­gan­iser An­drew Goldie – were “talk, be heard, re­lax and have fun”.

The North Bur­nett Lec­turette Com­pe­ti­tion will be an an­nual event.
