The Quest is designed to encourage student interest in leadership and the qualities required to take an active and constructive role in the community.
It seeks a high level of academic, leadership, sporting, public speaking and citizenship achievement in its potential winners. By emphasizing these qualities it hopes to provide outstanding role models for the youth of Australia and an overall increase in the confidence of young men and women.
The Quest is an excellent means of assisting Australia's youth and promoting the essential role of leadership development and community service organisations in maintaining Australia's high standard of living.
The Lions Club of Bundaberg has been part of the Quest for many years. From the earliest days of the Club, a Youth of the Year representative has been selected to move through to higher levels of judging including the State finals.
This Club project fell into recess for a few years in the 1980's and early 1990's. It was re-activated in 1996 and remains as a strong Club project with enthusiastic support from our access school, Bundaberg State High School.
