Headlands student Molly McAteer has won a place in the Lions District 105C competition to be held in January 2014.

Two students from Headlands School were selected to enter the first round of the competition, sponsored by Bridlington Lions Club, and had to give a short presentation to an independent panel of three judges on their role as Peer Mentors at their school, followed by an interview with the panel. The judges were very impressed with both candidates, but finally declared Molly the winner, with Savina Cater a creditable runner up.

The Young Ambassador Scheme is a Lions Clubs initiative for young people actively involved in the welfare of the community and is open to young people throughout the British Isles and Ireland aged 15 or over, but under 19.

The competition is an annual event organised in stages, starting at Lions Club level and culminating at the Multiple District Finals held in February.

Bridlington Lions Club are pleased to continue sponsorship for Molly who will now go forward to the Lions District 105C competition to be held on 4th January 2014. Should Molly win this stage of the competition, she will receive a £500 bursary to be spent on her project and move forward to the Multiple District Finals to be held in February 2014.
