Legacy Public Speaking Award

The Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award is a national competition that aims to enhance students’ communication skills and to help people appreciate the ideals of Legacy, which are:

  • voluntary service
  • social justice
  • caring
  • personal sacrifice
  • mateship. 

Legacy is a unique Australian voluntary not-for-profit charity, an organisation dedicated to enhancing the lives of families of our Australian Defence Force veterans who have served in war, peacekeeping and humanitarian missions and who have sadly died or become incapacitated either during war or subsequently. The organisation currently cares for over 3,500 families throughout South Australia. Lily (9CRID) represented Concordia beautifully during the preliminary round of the competition and then on Friday 18 August was awarded a trophy for competing as one of six State Finalists for South Australia. She presented an excellent and heart-warming speech about the life and war service of her Great Grandfather. Congratulations, Lily.
