MD201 Leo Of The Year Quest
The Leo of the Year Quest is an annual competition for Leo club members across the Multiple District. Its aims are:
1. To develop and encourage the individual qualities of Leadership, Experience and Opportunity
2. To provide recognition of Leos’ contributions to their clubs and communities
3. To select a fine ambassador for the Leos of Australia and PNG (Multiple District 201)
The National Winner becomes the ambassador for Leos for a year, and is funded up to $1500 to travel to promote the Leo Program (or attend an International Youth Camp if the winner is under 18 years of age). There is also a prize of $2000 for personal travel or education expenses.
Leos wishing to enter the competition must complete the Entry Form and submit it to their District Leo Chairman who will arrange the first level of judging. District winners will proceed to State judging, and State winners progress to the National Final which is held at the MD Lions Convention (usually in early May).
Lions will cover the costs of Leo contestants to attend all levels of judging for which they qualify. For further information about the Quest, please see the Entry Form and Guidelines below.

Congratulations to 2017 National Leo of the Year Jesse Pascoe from Aspley Leo Club in District 201Q3. Jesse is a wonderful ambassador for Australian Leos. He has represented Leos at several District Conventions and at the ANZI Forum in Ballarat.
