For Lions Youth of the Year

Welcome to Lions Youth Of The Year

If you are a young student and will be between the ages of 16 and 18 years of age as at the 30th of June in the year of the National Final, then you may be eligible to enter the Lions Youth of the Year. This is a prestigious event for young people, which boasts many high profile Australians among 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. By entering the program, which is now in its 55th 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. Read more
