EMCS Student Wins Scholarship for Rotary Speech

EMCS‘ very own Kayla Curtis came in third place last night at Finals in the Rotary Club of Royal Oak Centennial’s public speaking contest for students.

Kayla, a grade 11 student at Edward Milne, won third place and a $500 scholarship for her eloquent speech on the topic of violence in the media and its impact on society. She had stiff competition as all six finalists did a great job of their presentations at Spectrum Secondary.

Kayla originally competed in the semi-finals on April 3 at Claremont Secondary School where she argued that university tuition in Canada should be free. She spoke about the cost of education, and highlighted countries such as Finland who have abolished tuition fees.

Excellent work Kayla! Congratulations on your scholarship winning speech!


  • First place $1000 scholarship
  • First runner up $750 scholarship
  • Third place $500 scholarship
