The Annual Youth Showcase in Taunton was nothing short of inspirational. It just goes to show how much talent there is out there if only the Youth in our District are given the opportunity to shine.
We were treated to some fantastic performances by our Rotary Young Musicians and a thought provoking speech from the Winning Youth Speaks team. We were shown a clever solution to the District Technology Challenge involving a flashing light, pendulum and RNLI flag …..
….and we were given the opportunity to view winning entries from the Young Writer and Young Photographer competitions. We finished off with a cup of delicious soup from this years Rotary Young Chef.This certainly whetted our appetite for getting the schools in the Brue Valley area more involved in at least one or more of these annual competitions.
When speaking to the winning contestants and their teachers, we were struck by the fact that all were unanimous in praising the benefits of taking part, such as increased self confidence, team working and skills development. We look forward to discovering more talented young people in the coming year!
