Four students have been chosen to represent the Inglewood schools cluster at the Taranaki junior speech maker finals.
Capri Peterson and Mya Theobald from Inglewood Primary and Matias Hunt and Taihua Mathieson-Julian from Norfolk School were selected from a group of 10 at the Lions club junior speech maker competition held in Inglewood.
The topics ranged from Tai in the middle, Why Whittakers chocolate is better than Cadbury, Why romantic movies shouldn't be made and Are electric cars are better for the environment.
New Plymouth Lioness Club member Shirley Yates says the competition is a joint project between New Plymouth Lioness and Inglewood Lions clubs.

At the competition, the four had three minutes to deliver their prepared speech and then had one minute to deliver the speech on an impromptu topic given to competitors on the day. The topic was Why I deserve pocket money.
They will now go on to compete at the Taranaki junior speech maker finals in Hāwera in November.
At the finals, competitors deliver their prepared speech and are given an impromptu topic to talk about for a minute.
Shirley says the four spoke well.
"They were really great. I wish them all the best for the finals."
