TRINITY TEAM TRIUMPH!
This year, in the Youth Speakers Club, hosted by the Rotary club of Carlisle at the Shepherds Inn, Trinity A won, and then Caldew were second.
The winning topic, from the Trinity A Team, was about “If we could sustain life on Mars”. The speaker, middle in the picture, had six minutes to talk about this, and presented this clearly and confidently.
The second place team, Caldew, talked about “The newly proposed crossing at the castle”.
Trinity had two teams in the competition, and the other team, Trinity B, talked about how “Brexit has increased Hate Crime in the country”. The B Team could count themselves unfortunate not to have finished higher, however someone had to step in at the last minute for the main speaker so it did sound a little unrehearsed, however it was very entertaining.
There were five team in the competition this year, and the other two were from Austin Friars, who had entered two teams, but didn’t win anything.
In my opinion, all teams did exceptionally well, and the judge’s decision was very close.
If you would like to find out more about this competition visit the Carlisle Rotary website for more information, and don’t hesitate to use one of the many contacts on the site for further details.
