Lions Oratory Competition

What is the Lions Oratory Competition?

Lions Club Woden member Manikkam Reddy started the competition in 1994 to give students an opportunity to master and excel in the art of oratory. His aim was to help tertiary students build their confidence in public speaking as they look towards their future careers. Manik, as we all knew him, has since passed away but his memory still lives on in the continued success of the competition.
