Since early March, Assumption College Catholic High School student Laura Limarzi has competed in a series of public speaking contests through Optimist International.  Monday March 7th marked the first of these contests as the Grade 11 student delivered a spirited speech on children’s rights around the world.  She beat out a strong field of local competitors and she advanced to a regional contest.

Despite changing a few details for the second round, she achieved the same result; 1st place!  This victory qualified her for a third round of competition, in Port Stanley, Ontario.  Once again, Laura’s superior research and well timed delivery proved to be the right stuff, as she collected her third consecutive victory and thus a spot in the provincial finals.

On April 16, Laura carried this momentum into the final contest, and delivered easily the most powerful talk amongst the competitors.  This fourth straight victory capped off an incredible run for one of Assumption’s finest!! In total, she won $2600 in scholarship money in the process.
