Aims & Eligibility:-

The Youth of the Year Quest, run by the Lions Clubs of Australia, aims to encourage students aged 16-18 years old to take an active, constructive leadership role in their community. It seeks a high level of academic, leadership, sporting, public speaking and citizenship achievement, and to this end, winners are selected by judging panels from local club level through to national winners. The final national winner receives an overseas trip to represent Australia at an international youth conference or to undertake a specific overseas study tour, but along the way, various other prizes are offered.
