California Multi-District 4 Student Speaker Contest


The California Lions Club MD4 Student Speaker Contest is a state wide contest. Clubs are encouraged to participate and partner with local area highschools to give students the opportunity to compete for accumulating scholarships. The topic changes ever year and only one winner advances from each level, until the winner is announced by MD4.

This contest is overseen by MD4 Student Speaker Fundation.


This contest is open to all students ages 11, 12 & 13. A Lions club hosts the first level of the contest (Club Level). The winning student from each club then advances to district level. Each level only advances one winner. History has shown that all too often peace is not guaranteed.This contest in both visual and essay form, allows students to image peace in the framework of the topic and create written and visiual art that speaks to the annual theme.

Lions Clubs International Youth Exchange Program

Open to all students between the ages of 15 ½ - 21.

Since 1961 Lions Clubs have been sending as many students as possible around the world to experience another culture in the hopes of bringing about peaceful relations and a better understanding of the rest of the world. Our thousands of ambassadors, who do not have to come from Lions members, are picked, not for their scholastic ability, but for their desire to learn about another culture.

We encourage all students from around the United States to participate in our largest escorted program to Japan. We also exchange for a 4-5 week summer program to countries in Europe and elsewhere around the world.

Annual Tournament of Roses Parade
Lions Clubs International Float

Lions Float Inc. Logo

The theme for the Tournament of Roses Parade, changes every year.  The Lions Float, Inc Logo above, captures our committment to always participate in this historic parade. Lions love the challeng to design a float that depicts and fits perfectly around one of LCI's five signature projects or annual International theme, that encompasses the Parade's theme.

Each year LEOS from all over California get the opportunity to decorate the float in preparation of its, January 1st international display.

Our on going participation in this historic parade, requires collective funding from Lions. Each  Lions club, district, and every individual is encouraged to help in the funding of future floats. There are 6 (six) different opportunities: (1) The club Banner Patch program, (2) Purchasing float merchandise, (3) The "Ride of Your Life" package, (4) Out Walker positions, (5) Awarding one of five Fellowships to deserving Lions, and (6) Participating in Annual Golf Tournament.

The Lions Rose Float is Centerpiece for Worldwide Public Relations and Membership Recruiting
