Chelsea Dempster was declared the Berrigan Lions Club Youth of the Year last Wednesday night.
The event was hotly contested at The Royal Hotel where contestants were joined by Lions members, family and friends.
Sarah Walliss and Chelsea were interviewed by judges Ray Eldridge and Kate Lee prior to the evening.
The judges said they were ‘‘most impressed’’ with the standard of the girls’ achievements, their ability to answer two impromptu speeches and the manner in which they presented their own five-minute speech.
Sarah spoke about ‘The Power of Love’, while Chelsea’s speech was about ‘Being Successful’.
Chelsea won the public speaking award and was declared the overall winner.
She will now compete against the Finley and Deniliquin Lions Club winners at regional level in Berrigan on March 9.
