Grade 10 stu­dent wins first place in speak out


Jes­sica Dawe was cho­sen first place win­ner at Club Level in the Bay Roberts Lions spon­sored an­nual Speak Out com­pe­ti­tion March 2.

A grade 10 stu­dent at­tend­ing As­cen­sion Col­le­giate, Dawe chose Bul­ly­ing Preda­tor as her topic, which Lions Vice-pres­i­dent Ivy Pynn de­scribed as “ well pre­sented.”

Dawe pre­vi­ously won first place in two New­found­land and Labrador Teach­ers’ Asso- cia­tion pub­lic speak­ing com­pe­ti­tions ( 2007-2008).

“ She says she is looking for­ward to a ca­reer in the health field as a ge­net­ics doc­tor,” said Pynn.

Dawe is the daugh­ter of William and Diane Dawe of Up­per Is­land Cove and grand­daugh­ter of William and Mary Dawe and Clarence and Ger­tie Mercer.

She will go on to en­ter the re­gional pub­lic speak­ing com­pe­ti­tion in Gan­der in April.

Run­ners up were: Am­ber Samms, Chelsey Dicks, Latoya Boland ( third), Sarah Downey ( sec­ond), Ka­lene Tay­lor, Shaina Nor­man, Nicole Gib­son, Johnathon Whalen and Adam Coombs.

Ad­ju­di­ca­tors were Judy Mor­row, El­iz­a­beth Power and Sherry Shanahan.

Pynn said par­tic­i­pants par­tic­u­larly liked the judg­ing style of M o r r o w, who ad­dressed each of the stu­dents in­di­vid­u­ally on their topic and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the con­test.

Lion Wal­ter Snow em­ceed the event, while Trea­surer Roland Dawe was time­keeper. Brian Dawe and Kathi Stacey were ques­tion­naires.

Prior to the com­pe­ti­tion and awards pre­sen­ta­tion, stu­dents, par­ents and in­vited guests were wel­comed by Pres­i­dent Mar­garet Brad­bury and en­joyed a roast beef din­ner hosted by the Lions.
