On January 18, The North Las Vegas Host Lions Club hosted a Club Level Student Speakers competition at The Lions Club, which is located at 2934 Van Der Meer St., North Las Vegas, NV 89030, where two people competed to advance to the zone levels. The club president, Gerald Bridgewater, and four other judges came to judge the student’s speeches that they prepared. Both students from Rancho High School, Peter Shin and Marina Parsom competed against each other speaking about this year’s topic: “What influence does social media have on youth, millennial, and senior in our society?” Each speaker prepared a speech as close to, but not over, ten minutes, nor less than five minutes delivery time. Each speaker went home with a certificate of participation and a check to congratulating both the winner and the participant. Marina Parsom won, and will be advancing to the zone level, where she will next compete in next.
