DALBY Lions Club held its annual Youth of the Year award last weekend, with four top candidates from Dalby State High School vying for the title.
Youth of the Year is designed to encourage student interest in leadership and the qualities required to take an active and constructive role in the community.
The Judges for this years event were Lian Tisdell, Tom Bower and Andie Walker.
When it came down to the crunch Danielle Leggett was awarded the public speaking award, while Danielle Kruger was crowned the overall winner.
The girls will now contest the regional competition in Chinchilla this Saturday.
If successful, they could move onto the district finals before the state and national finals.
The Dalby Lions Club would like to congratulate all candidates on their performance throughout the judging process.
