Our essay competition is now in its 11th year and is open to students from our three local primary schools – Point Lonsdale, Queenscliff and St Aloysius. This year the club received 32 responses to the theme "City or country?"  The winner was Lucy Cooper with runner up Leo Howard. Jack Connell and Tessa Herbert received encouragement awards. Lucy's mum Jenny commented "What a wonderful opportunity for our local young writers ... Thank you so much to the Queenscliff Rotary Club ... I love your motto; 'Rotary: Making A Difference'.  It has certainly helped give my daughter confidence and the self esteem to 'believe' in herself."
