Quota International of Beenleigh is inviting young people in year 11 to enter the 2018 World Service Ambassador of the Year. Entry is free for this popular and rewarding public-speaking competition, whether you're a competitor or in the audience. Winners won't just be great public speakers, they'll be generous too.

The Quota World Service Ambassador of the Year empowers students to make a real difference in the lives of disadvantaged people, in communities recognised by Quota throughout the world. It also serves to educate students on ways to overcome poverty and provide much-needed resources in third world countries.

Every entrant gets to research a Quota Hand-in-Hand World Service project and prepare a passionate speech. Speeches need to be four-minutes long and will be presented at a special event on May 16th in Beenleigh. The event is free to attend and includes a light supper. A panel of judges will determine the prize winners on the night.
