Portishead Rotary Club organised a public speaking contest for pupils at Gordano School.
The Rotary District 1,100 Youth Speaks competition saw Ben Holmes, Rosie Matthews and Rosy Wyatt represent the school against five other teams.
The Ugly Truth was the title of the presentation and the trio had to go and research their own information before then delivering it publicly.
A rotary spokesman said: “There is incentive to formulate idea’s on topical subjects, discipline on dealing with a topic in a limited time and it was obvious from the content of the presentation that much research and thought had gone into the subject.
“The competition provides the opportunity for learning, practising high standards of expression, presentation and appearance.”
