Finley’s Chloe O’Bryan took the crown at the Lions Youth of the Year regional competition held in Berrigan on Sunday.

Chloe was the Finley Lions Club representative after winning the local competition last month.

Also vying for the title were Berrigan winner Chelsea Dempster and Deniliquin’s Kelsey Geldenhuys.

All three were interviewed by judges Bill Daly, Andrea O’Neill and Renee Pether, who represented competition sponsor the National Australia Bank.

Berrigan Lion Beth Rendell said the contestants answered their two-minute impromptu questions ‘‘most professionally’’.

The finalists were also required to give a five-minute prepared speech on a topic of their choosing.

Chloe spoke about ‘first world indifference’ to also claim the separate public speaking competition.

She will now go on to represent the region at district level on Sunday, March 30 at Corowa.
