Stevi Ray Page representing Hollister Rotary
Page won Rotary Club of Hollister's Annual Richard D. King Youth Speech Contest on January 29th, 2018 before going on to represent Hollister Rotary at the Area 6 level contest hosted by the Rotary Club of Almaden Valley.
Four students from Area 6 clubs represented their clubs at the Three Flames Restaurant in San Jose on March 1, 2018. Each student recited a speech that included this year's theme of Making a Difference and needed to include Rotary's 4 Way Test guiding principles.
This year Morgan Hill's Channing Buchman took home the First-place prize. Buchman will represent Area 6 Clubs at the regional level contest with a chance to compete at the District 5170 contest in April. Each of the students did an incredible job and should be very proud. We are especially proud of Hollister's own student winner Stevi Rae Page, who has consistently competed in the Speech Contest over the last few years and didn't give up until she won. Her determination, leadership and poise are going to take her to great places. 
First Place Winner is Channing Buchman, Morgan Hill
Second place is Stevi Rae Page, Hollister
Tied for Third place is Emiliano Esparza, San Juan Bautista and Sadagopan Palaniappan, Gilroy Sunrise
