Rotary Club Honors Speech Contest Winners


Rotary Club of Hollister held its Richard D. King  Annual Youth Speech Contest on Monday, January 25, 2016. Ten students from San Benito High School and Pinnacles Community School competed in the contest this year. Hernan Chavez, who attends Pinnacles Community School, took first place in the contest and was awarded $100. Second place winner, and runner up Holly Lompa, and third place winner, Katie Silva, both attend San Benito High School. Both were also awarded cash prizes.


All speeches needed to be the original work of the students and this year’s theme, “Be a Gift to the World,” had to be incorporated into the speech.


Within the District, Clubs are grouped into nine Areas, with three to nine Clubs in each Area.  Every Club Level winner will compete with the winners from the other clubs in that Area. The first place winner will be selected to participate in the Regional Level competition, with other contests in the Rotary District.

1st place winner: Hernan Chavez
