Port Macquarie’s Stephanie Clark is in line for the national final of Lions Youth of the Year.

The St Columba Anglican School student was named the region 3 winner on Saturday. She will now compete in the district finals in Coffs Harbour at the end of March.

With the state finals set for Forbes in April, Stephanie could then progress to the national final in Hobart on May 8.

The region judging was held at Port City Bowling Club and hosted by the Port Macquarie-Tacking Point Lions Club.

Event coordinator Mal Murray praised all four contestants.

“There was a very strong field for judging on Saturday night with Luke Strong from Manning River Lions Club, Stephanie Clark representing Port Macquarie Lions Club, Jorga Attard from the Port Macquarie-Tacking Point Lions Club andMaitrix Sumptner-Johnston representing the Taree Lions Club,” he said.

“All four were wonderful ambassadors for their community and their respective Lions Clubs.

“The youth of the year is designed to encourage, foster and develop leadership in conjunction with other citizenship qualities in our youth.

“As a former teacher, I think this is important at an age when these young people are about to enter the fields of employment or higher education.

“This program provides students with the incentive to pay greater attention to the general qualities, so vital in developing our youth into first class citizens.

“The qualities sought after, apart from academic attainments are those of leadership, personality, sportsmanship, public speaking and good citizenship.”

Mr Murray said there was 64 people at the dinner with the night sponsored byPort Macquarie NAB, Port News, Port City Bowling Club, Hastings District Flying Club, Port Macquarie Car Wash, Town Green Inn, Rivermark Restaurant, Grumpys, Nostalgia Cafe, Bean Tree Cafe, Lake Innes Bakery,Douglas Vale Vineyard, Will & Able Laundromat and Bookface,

“Asincerethank you from all the members of the Tacking Point Lions Club foryour continuedsupport,” he added.

Judging covered two key categories: public speaking and resume and interviews.
