Youth of the Year

If you are a young person and will be between the ages of 15 and 19 years of age as at 30th June, 2016, then you are eligible to enter Lions Youth of the Year . This is a prestigious event for young people, which boasts many high profile Australians amongst the ranks of former entrants. These include: Kevin Rudd; Peter Beattie, a past premier of Queensland; the ABC’s Sabra Lane and Senator Simon Birmingham. Through entering the program, which is now in its 50th year, you will have an unequalled opportunity to experience an interview situation – in a friendly atmosphere – and a chance to practise your public speaking skills.

The best way to enter, is to talk to your local Lions Club. If you don’t know how to do this then please email the Australian Chairman at and he will contact a local club.
