David Charette and Lia Lazzarrotto travelled to Surrey for the Concur Provincial Championships last week and while they didn’t place in the top three, both said it was an excellent experience.

“It was the best I have ever done my speech,” Lazzarrotto said who did her speech on Sex Trafficking. “ It was so much fun and anyone of us could have won because all the competition was really tough.”

Charette who spoke about bacteria said he too thoroughly enjoyed the competition and has come away feeling really great about the whole event.

“It was really fun and I made the judges laugh which was great,” he said.

After the competition the duo enjoyed sightseeing in Vancouver with Lia’s mom and sister and made the best of an exciting trip they said.
