TEENAGERS from Clevedon School have been rewarded after delivering a number of impressive speeches.
More than 500 of the school’s year eight, nine and 10 pupils applied to take part in a public speaking competition organised by The Rotary Club of Clevedon Yeo.
The entries were whittled down to 17 who all spoke to a panel of four judges during a final at the Walton Park Hotel in Wellington Terrace.
The topics covered ranged from the armed forces to living abroad and from charity to animal cruelty.
In joint third place were Josh Fowler who spoke about religion and Billy Blackall who delivered a piece on parental control.
